Paws & Effect Kissing Booth

Optix is excited to welcome The Hero Litter, four Labrador retriever puppies whose training will support their efforts to become service dogs for deserving Veterans in Western North Carolina.  Founded in 2006, Paws & Effect is celebrating their expansion into our community.  With more than 100 service dog teams successfully partnered in the upper Midwest, we are looking forward to the good that will come from their presence here.

Dr. Walters has had a passion for serving the veteran community for the 20 year duration of her practice, Optix Eye Care.  We accept direct referrals from the VA medical center for routine vision care and also provide specialized follow up care. We also participate with all TriCare plans for active duty military and retired veterans.

We are hosting a puppy kissing booth on October 31st, between 1-3pm.  The Hero Litter will be joining us with their tail wags to share some of their new skills.  This experience is especially enriching for the puppies as they will have an opportunity to play with children.  Both children and puppies will be guided towards appropriate interactions with fun for all!
Come out and get a puppy kiss! Donations accepted but not necessary. All donations received that day will aid in the extensive training for the service dogs that will serve our veterans. If you want to learn more about the program please come out and find out all about it. You can also visit their website at https://www.paws-effect.org/
