Hi, my name is Vanessa Colesworthy and I am a United Church of Christ pastor in coastal Maine. There are many needs in my community which I feel a NEADS dog could meet. My dog will accompany me as I visit people in homes, nursing facilities, hospitals, and local schools as well as in my duties as a chaplain to the fire and police departments. I can't wait to meet my new partner in ministry and am asking for any contributions that will help me meet my goal. Thanks and blessings!
