No Resolution In Service Dog Conflict

(Easthampton, MA) — There’s still no resolution between a disabled vet with a service dog and the Pulaski Club in Easthampton. On Thanksgiving night, Gary Houle Junior was allegedly kicked out of the club on account of his service dog. Sunday dozens of people showed up at a demonstration on his behalf. Outside the club, Governor’s Councilor Michael Albano was there offering to mediate, but Houle refused. The vet with PTSD said the Pulaski Club only offered mediation after it learned a protest was planned.
