Santiago’s Love of Dogs Pays Off


Sometimes, something great comes from doing what you love to do most. Santiago is 23 year old and graduated from Glades High School in Coral Springs, FL. He was working as a busboy at a local restaurant when he contacted ICAN Living and Learning Center with the dream of finding a rewarding career. Santiago has always had a love of animals and was walking dogs around his neighborhood for some extra money. Seeing his passion and how he handled animals, ICAN connected Santiago with a local dog training business to gain experience and harness his talents working with dogs. ICAN paid for his on the job training and within a short time, ICAN was able to secure a position for Santiago with the company working 30 hours a week. His hard work and dedication paid off. Santiago not only has a great opportunity to grow and prosper in a job that is fulfilling; he also is doing something he loves, helping his furry friends.
