MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

An abandoned dog found in Tuscaloosa is now in Montgomery to help people.

Pilots and Paws flew Goldie into Montgomery Thursday for Service Dogs of Alabama.

After a vet visit, Goldie will begin her training. She will ultimately help a child or veteran with a disability.

"We give them to children and veterans with disabilities, and their whole world changes when they receive a dog from us. We train dogs for diabetic alert, which we call our life saving dogs, seizure alert, wheelchair assistance, balance issues, PTSD. So we have a huge range of training techniques and tasks that we train dogs to do," said Frances McGowin with Service Dogs of Alabama.

There are volunteer opportunities with Service Dogs of Alabama if you are interested call 462-2463. You can also visit the Service Dogs of Alabama website.
