I think this is a fantastic organization that cares deeply for the dogs it trains and the community it serves. The joy and healing that the therapets bring to children, elderly, sick and imprisoned cannot be overestimated. The volunteers I have met are dedicated and enthusiastic.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the behavior and effect of my sister's therapet, Maggie, when she visits the elderly.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
