Meet Ainsely, a lovable labrador retriever
We are so pleased to welcome a new furry friend to the neighborhood, Ranger Ainsely. Ainsely is an adorable, people-loving two-year-old Labrador retriever and new official Guest Ambassador at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain.
Ainsely comes to Dove Mountain from Canine Companions for Independence® (CCI), a non-profit which grants highly trained assistance dogs to military veterans and children and adults with disabilities. The organization provides two full years of training for each service canine with just a small percentage of these trainees actually making the cut and receiving assignment to an individual in need.
Ainsley welcomes guests and accepts hugs
The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain has partnered with CCI to support the program, including adopting Ainsley who has become a member of the resort’s Kids Ranger team.
He will also participate in Ritz Kids reading sessions and be a key member of the resort team’s Community Footprints program, an initiative supporting area non-profit organizations focusing on assisting at-risk children and families, and those in need of food, shelter and basic human care.
To the delight of children and adults, Ainsley is now officially welcoming guests and accepting hugs!
