Programs & Services:
- Therapy Dogs and their handlers are certified to visit people who will benefit from regular contact with a dog. Therapy Dogs are deemed ‘emotional support dogs’ and help meet the need for physical touch and companionship that isn’t satisfied by the neutral touching involved in physical care received in hospitals, residential facilities or with ‘special needs’ children.
- Therapy Dog visits are provided on a volunteer basis, at no cost to the residents, schools or care facilities.
