On February 12, 2019 BobbleBoss announced their partnership with the New York Rangers and BluePath Service Dogs to launch the newest addition of the National Hockey League (NHL) Bobblehead collection: an Autism Service Dog!
The Bobblehead will be modeled after Ranger, the first service dog to be sponsored by an NHL team. Now, there are five dogs total: Barclay for the St. Louis Blues, Flambo for the Montreal Canadiens, Rookie for the Ottawa Senators, Radar for the New York Islanders, and Ranger for the New York Rangers!
BluePath Service Dogs was founded in 2016 to help provide safety, comfort, and companionship to individuals with ASD. By providing service dogs, BluePath gives people with ASD the opportunity to create independence.
With every purchase of a Ranger Bobblehead, $5 will be donated to BluePath. Ranger is available for pre-order, to be shipped out August 1, in time for the 2019 season.
Michelle Brier, VP of Marketing and Development for BluePath said to ESNY, “Our partnership with the NY Rangers and Kollectico serves to raise important awareness and funds for autism and service dogs. Future autism service dog Ranger is a sweet and playful pup with a terrific sense of humor; we look forward to seeing his personality come to life in Bobblehead form!”
“The opportunity to create a special bobblehead for such a good cause was one that we could not pass up,” said Andrew S. Hazen, Founder & CEO of New York-based BobbleBoss to ESNY. “We look forward to delivering a fantastic one of a kind collectible for Rangers fans and dog lovers alike and at the same time help raise money for a great cause.”
