Furry Friends Need Love, Too
August 9, 2019
FirstEnergy and employees support multiple events, programs and initiatives throughout our service area. And, we also take care of our four-legged friends in need. Here are a few examples.
JCP&L was a sponsor of The Seeing Eye’s 90th Gala in Morristown, N.J. Established in 1929, The Seeing Eye organization provides specially bred and trained dogs to guide people who are blind. When The Seeing Eye puppies reach the age of seven or eight weeks, they are delivered to volunteer puppy raisers. These foster families nurture and care for the pups until they are 13- to 16-months-old. They teach the puppies basic manners and commands and socialize them to a variety of situations and experiences ranging from shopping and car rides to boarding airplanes.
Penelec employees recently participated in the Penelec Community Council’s donation drive for the ANNA Shelter. The nonprofit animal welfare organization houses, rehabilitates and adopts stray or unwanted pets in Erie, Pa.
