2017 American Humane Hero Dog Awards – Therapy Dog Winner – Aladdin Video

2017 American Humane Hero Dog Awards, Therapy Dog Winner Aladdin.

Every single Monday, Alladin trots into the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) on Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. Every single Monday, he brings smiles to children battling illnesses, grappling with disorders that could slay giants, but they persevere with hearts a little lighter because of him.

Aladdin was found severely emaciated in 2013, both of his back legs & tail had been broken, missing 12 teeth with open wounds. I foster emaciated dogs and he came to me. From the moment I met him, his little tail never stopped wagging, despite his horrific condition.

Aladdin had a rough recovery but he overcame the obstacles put before him. He greeted every person with a lot of hope, and despite the abuse he suffered, he trusted enough to learn that no one would hurt him again. Within the year he was a certified therapy dog bringing love to everyone he meets.

Aladdin is a Ronald McDonald House Ambassador dog, his favorite duty! He visits schools doing a humane education, anti-bullying program. He is a trained crisis response dog & spent a week in Orlando last year after the shooting doing therapy visits & fundraising for the Victims Fund. He works with the Philadelphia Police fundraising for the Fallen Officers Fund & attending the events they do with special needs children. He is an ambassador dog for Tito’s Vodka for Dog People Campaign and together they have raised over 300,000 for rescues & shelters all over. He also works with Veterans & PACT for Animals.
