Review from Guidestar

Therapet does not have a program in Chapel Hill or through that school system. We have never had a fundraising program with Chapel Hill or any other school system. We do not fundraise for grooming expenses, the volunteers do cover that cost themselves. We will investigate the situation
as it appears to be someone raising funds using our Foundation without our permission.

The numbers of patients, staff, and visitors my dogs and I have touched by volunteering with Therapet over the last 16 years are uncountable. The miracle of healing, the restoration of hope and the advancement of health by bringing my animal to the bedside of a patient transcends words. Yet, I will try to share some of my most memorable moments I have been witness to by volunteering with my dogs for Therapet. An unconscious patient strokes my animal’s fur coat, making a "conscious" movement for the first time. A blind cancer patient recognizes my dog through only his touch. A child stops crying and smiles as my dog distracts her from the painful procedure. Her parent gratefully mouths thank you. A young boy gets out of his hospital bed to walk my dog for the first time since surgery. His nurses declare it a miracle! A stroke patient, struggling to regain their speech, is able to whisper the word squirrel. She smiles as my dog barks in response. These memories are but a few of the hundreds, possibly thousands of times my animals have made an impact on the life of another fellow human being. This organization has impacted me deeply. I am honored and humbled to be a part of Therapet and to share my animals in this most unique way of providing health, hope and healing .

Therapet has been a life changing experience for my dog and I. The act of sharing my dog with those that are ill or impaired in some way has given me a more positive perspective on people. Patients and those in need who show their love and gratitude for the simple kindness an animal gives them have reinforced my belief that all humans just want to be loved. Animals give that unconditionally. This group of people who love their dogs and animals and unselfishly share them with others is simple yet remarkable. The positive effects are not only shared by patients and those in need but also by the volunteers, staff and the animals themselves.

the positive rewards of helping others while sharing my dog. Also having a Greyhound dog that was adopted through rescue has exposed this breed to the public in such a positive manner that it has helped promote adoptions.
