Proclamation Signing by New Mexico Governor

New Mexico Proclamation Signing

When: Monday, August 2, 2010, 1:30 pm
Where: Cabinet Room of the New Mexico State Capitol

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson will be signing a proclamation in honor of National Assistance Dog Week  with representatives from Working Like Dogs and Assistance Dogs of the West in attendance. The two groups asked the Governor to declare August 8-14 Assistance Dog Week in New Mexico and he agreed.  They then asked if he could take part in a signing event and he graciously made himself available.

National Assistance Dog Week was begun by Santa Fe resident and social entrepreneur, Marcie Davis, so it is fitting that New Mexico’s Governor honor the event in this way.

Assistance Dogs of the West and Working Like Dogs want to thank the Governor and his staff for their  recognition of National Assistance Dog Week in New Mexico.
