In October, the nonprofit Dogs for Better Lives opened its energy efficient new facility in Central Point, Oregon. Dogs for Better Lives “trains and places assistance dogs with individuals who are deaf or who have hearing loss, children on the autism spectrum, as well as special needs students and individuals who benefit from the dog’s calming presence.” Since its opening in 1977, Dogs for Better Lives has provided over 1,300 assistance dogs to people across the US.

Energy Trust of Oregon provided Dogs for Better Lives with over $13,000 in incentives for their interior and exterior LED lighting, which will help save $7,000 annually in energy costs. This allows for money to instead be spent on the training and caretaking of more dogs.
