One of Cassidy’s front legs had to be amputated after he was hit by a car. Sheltie Rescue of Utah helped Cassidy heal and found him a forever home. Rather than wallowing in his misery, Cassidy turned his disability into a positive by providing comfort to others with different abilities.
Showing “courage in the face of adversity,” Cassidy does “presentations for children about disabilities, acceptance and how everyone is different, special and has something positive to give to the world.”
He also visits retirement homes and rehab centers where he “gives a lot of love,” according to his mom Kathy.
