CASPER, Wyo. (Release) - Grand Opening/Ribbon-Cutting for Project Kenny on Friday, January 28th at 11:00 am. at 1005 Falcon in Mills.

Project Kenny is a non-profit organization created by Carol Salveson, who places service dogs with veterans and first responders who suffer debilitating injuries or PTSD in the line of duty.

She also places service and comfort dogs with children who lost a parent to combat or suicide because of their PTSD. Often, a service animal is denied, but Project Kenny screens, then places animals with the right families in the right circumstance with fewer restrictions as other animal placement services. That allows law enforcement the same access to a service animal as our combat veterans. At any given point, Carol trains 7-12 puppies and relies heavily on volunteers.

Until recently, these animals were all in her Casper home. She’s secured a location in Mills to better accommodate her services and the work of her organization.

Project Kenny is a local organization and is a Chamber Investor for almost a year.

The Casper Area Chamber of Commerce (CACC) is the voice of the Natrona County business community and provides the platform for our business community to work in support of enhanced economic development and growth for our community.
