August 6, 2012–In honor of International Assistance Dog Week, Public Radio reporter Matt Kelly interviewed event founder Marcie Davis. He asked Davis what people should know about service dogs as a way to help spread the word about what these amazing animals can do.

The interview, originally broadcast August 6, coincided with the annual event, which in 2012 runs from August 5-12.
