Encore 49 got a special visit from a beautiful puppy Silas, who enjoyed a massage from one of our residents. Puppies Behind Bars is an organization that trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement. With their help Encore receives a monthly weekend visit and our senior community gets to experience the love of a caring puppy.
