DR. MITCHELL S. PORCHE, Jr.
Lieutenant Mitchell Porche, Jr. served several tours in the Vietnam War returning with injuries that were improved through contact with animals. This example and personal experience inspires Michelle & Dan to support others through the inevitable, heartbreaking process of animal loss. In doing so, they also hope to support potential successor service or companion animal teams.
B. JOY DRAPER
Joy is the inspiration behind the Joy Project, an initiative to unite eligible graduates of our other initiatives with successor service or companion animals. Her unwavering belief that people with disabilities can and do contribute to their world inspires Michelle on a daily basis.
