Meet a Puppy Raiser
Name: Celene Steele
School: University of Kentucky
Major: Human Health Sciences-Pre Dental
Dogs fostered: Currently fostering my 3rd dog
When I first started puppy sitting my freshman year, words can’t describe how 4 Paws influenced my life in a positive way. Coming from a not so great start to my college career my first semester, I was showered with love and affection from the pups and everyone involved in the program. Fostering my first dog was a blessing in disguise. I truly believe in 4 Paws magic and if it wasn’t for this program at UK, I don’t think I would be where I am right now. I may have taught the pups I’ve fostered a thing or too about being a great service dog, but all of these dogs have taught me so much about myself that I will be forever grateful for. Patience, time management, social skills, and caring are just a few qualities I can think of to thank 4 Paws for helping me grow as a person. Three amazing dogs and so many wonderful friendships later, and I can’t say enough good things about this program!
