Volunteer, Candace Fleming (1950 - 2015) passed on 9/12/2015. We all miss her so very much.
Candace Fleming (1950 - 2015), with a smile always on her face, was more than a "fixture" here at Von Asgard K-9 Center (now Euro Pros Training Center). She had been training, playing with, and caring for small boarding dogs and puppies at Von Asgard for well over 20 years. Her volunteer time at von Asgard K-9 Center was very much appreciated, but more importantly, she enriched the lives of hundreds of small dogs and puppies.
Both Von Asgard K-9 Center and Euro Pros Training Center wish to take this opportunity to acknowledge Candace's contribution and her loving care of countless charglings over the years!
