Our volunteer handlers and their therapy dogs pass extensive evaluations by trained evaluators to ensure vulnerable clients receive safe and effective services.

We assess all facilities and mentor our therapy dog teams to ensure a successful environment for animal visits. Each year, our therapy dog teams serve people in more than 60 facilities, including:

  • Hospitals

  • Treatment programs

  • Schools and libraries

  • Palliative care facilities

  • Long-term care facilities

  • Rehabilitation centres

  • Universities
