Mon Shack, the Lennoxville residence for young adults living with mental health challenges, officially welcomed its newest boarder on Thursday in Brownie, a lively ten-year-old chocolate lab. “We’ve fallen in love with Brownie,” said David Plante, one of the 16 young people currently living in the supervised apartment complex, explaining that in the two weeks since the dog was adopted, 11 of the people living at Mon Shack have agreed to take on different aspects of the care of Brownie on a rotating schedule.
Plante, along with fellow resident Maïthe Cyr-Morin, were a part of a partnership between Mon Shack and the Eastern Townships SPA, offering dog-walking services for the animals awaiting adoption. See full story in the Friday, March 15 edition of The Record.
