THERAPET
June 7, 2010

I first learned of the Therapet organization at a special needs camp I was attending for my daughter. I was amazed at how the dogs interacted with the children. You saw instant joy on the kids faces but you could see how much the dogs enjoyed the interaction as well. I was hooked on Therapet from that day forward. I have one dog in the program and another in training. I feel it is the most rewarding thing I do with my dog. I have seen from both sides (patient/volunteer) the benefits that the Therapets bring. To see how the dogs instinctively react to the patients needs always takes my breath away.

The Great!
