A dog rescued by a Fort Campbell soldier from the Christian County Animal Shelter following the fire in March is now receiving formal training to be a PTSD service animal.
Kris Magstadt of Clarksville came to the shelter looking to foster a dog as a way to help until things at the building were back to normal. He says a Yellow Labrador mix named Cissie stuck out because of her calm demeanor.
Cissie is with Magstadt to stay now and he says she's receiving service animal training in Clarksville to assist with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms.
Several of the cats and dogs fostered following the fire were adopted into their foster homes, but there are still many needing forever homes. The shelter is again operating at full capacity and construction continues on an addition to the building.
