Tricia Klemenz, a resident of Yellow Grass as well as a teacher, a first responder and an EMR for the town, was diagnosed with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) last year, following an incident that occurred in Yellow Grass. It has been determined that an Alpha K-9 service dog would be beneficial to help her carry on daily routines.
A “Tricia Klemenz K-9 Trust” GoFundMe page has been set up to enable people to donate money, and a trust fund has been set up at the Yellow Grass Credit Union. In order to receive a dog, about $15,000 will need to be raised.
