Matthew and Stockard
Matt’s parents had done a lot of research on dogs and the beneﬁts of their interaction with children before they arrived at CPL for his …
They say dogs are man’s best friend, but how about a young woman’s best friend and life-changing service dog? Sundance Vacations is proud to support Canine Partners for Life (CPL) by sponsoring a dog for a young lady named Emily in York, PA.
The story began when one of Sundance Vacations’ clients, Faye, came in with her service dog Dreyfus and purchased a vacation. Sundance Vacations was impressed with her pooch’s ability to alert Shank of her seizures 47 minutes before they happen and operate a K9 911 phone call for emergency help.
“We are always looking for ways to give back to the community and support organizations that help change people’s lives,” said Tina Dowd, Co-founder of Sundance Vacations.
Thus, the relationship between CPL and Sundance Vacations began!
Now, years after, the Dowds sponsored a dog named Sundance II, or Sunny for short, for a young lady named Emily.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better teammate, friend, and family member. I’m so grateful (for Sunny), we both look out for each other too. She inspires me every day to do my best – not only for myself, but for her too,” said Emily. “She motivates me every day to be the best me I can be.”
Sunny stays true to her name: being a bright and supporting light in Emily’s life.

Sundance Vacations recently launched a new site to bring all the charities the Dowds donate to into one, easy to navigate location. To learn more about how you could support other causes such as CPL, please visit http://sundancevacationscharities.com/.
