First Samco Inc. (FSI), the exclusive distributor of Fobus Holsters & Pouches, has partnered with ECAD, a non-profit that has been training service dogs to assist individuals with disabilities and children with autism since 1995.
Beginning in 2008, ECAD, which stands for Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities, started the PROJECT HEAL program to meet the specific needs of disabled veterans.
FSI’s partnership with ECAD consists of donations to ECAD from the sale of Fobus products as well as FSI’s participation in and sponsorship of programs intended to bring awareness to ECAD and the service dog community at large. FSI is honored to be a part of the service dog community through ECAD knowing that so many people’s lives are improved by virtue of having a highly trained service dog to assist them.
