We met in 2014 at Becca's Illini Service Dogs interview. From then on, Illini Service Dogs played a large role in our relationship. One specific dog allowed our friendship to turn into more. His name was Aero. The three of us spent many hours together, growing an unbreakable bond. Even when Areo took a different training path, he remained part of the Illini Service Dogs family.
Illini Service Dogs places mobility service dogs free of charge to those in need. We have volunteered countless hours to this program, and it remains very close to our hearts.
Aero remained close to us until last year when he unfortunately passed away from cancer. Aero has left a legacy with Illini Service Dogs and with us.
