Drool Central: A mum & pup "barkery," along with the Anchorage School District's Adult Community Transition (ACT) Program, are teaming up to better the lives of young adults experiencing autism. ACT is transitional and transformative for 18 to 21-year-olds in the vocational learning and skills teaching program. It is life-changing because of small businesses like Drool Central, whose vision is to empower young students with autism through job training to prepare them for their future, whether it be with Drool Central or elsewhere. The new and only dog bakery or doggy cafe in town, Drool Central: A Mum & Pup Barkery LLC, has recently pivoted its mission of empowering young students with autism by training them in job skills. The vibrant one-of-a-kind doggy cafe is located at 3739 McCain Loop and owned by Daisy Nicolas.
