We bring elite therapy dogs to provide comfort in a crisis, a hospital, an airport, a nursing home — anywhere people could use love from a four-legged friend.
We’re a nonprofit with hundreds of volunteer therapy dog teams nationwide and overseas. But what every dog who wears the red vest has in common is rigorous training. Every dog must pass an AKC-approved Good Canine Citizenship test and undergo a two-day training.
Our organization formed during the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs. The fire destroyed hundreds of homes and more than 32,000 people evacuated, and two teams brought comfort to evacuees in hotels and centers.
