The Arizona Coyotes are now Puppy Raisers!

In partnership with National Assistance Dogs, Inc., the Coyotes have adopted a black Labrador Retriever named Luna and will train her to become a service dog. Luna will join Our Pack for 12-18 months until she masters proper service dog etiquette and abilities.

Once Luna has completed her training, she will be able to provide emotional support, fetch items, and do handy tricks like turn off light switches. Based on Luna's personality and abilities, she will then be matched with a veteran to assist them and their needs.

Throughout the 2019-20 season, alongside her training, Luna will learn to socialize, so fans should keep their eyes peeled for her at Coyotes games and events!
