Lions Club Donation Helps To Purchase Diabetic Alert Dog

111616 Tasha and Kent and Shadow C.jpg

Nashville Lions Club President Kent Shubert presented Tasha Dersch with a donation of $700 which helped to purchase Shadow, being held by Dersch. Shadow, just six-and-a-half-weeks-old at the time this photo was taken, has already begun training as a diabetic alert dog. If Dersch’s blood sugar gets too low or too high, Shadow will be able to smell subtle chemical changes on her breath and will let her know that she needs to address the situation. The donation of $700 went towards half the price of Shadow’s purchase and half the price of the training, which will continue for 18 months.
