Help Joy get her Service Dog back.

This petition had 437 supporters


Joy Tomkinson had her service dog Joel removed from her home and retired due to his aversion to high-pitched noises. This was discovered when a smoke detector went off in Joy's home. The Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind (CGDB) deemed that Joel 'posed a safety concern' to Joy and removed him from service, subsequently retiring him. Since Joel is no longer eligible to be a service dog, Joy has campaigned to adopt him with no cooperation from the CGDB. Please read the full story in the link below. It is truly heart-wrenching, as all pet owners can attest to. Please support the petition to have Joel reunited with Joy so they can happily live out their days together.
