Unique Work Model – Cycle Of Giving
We rescue dogs from shelters before being euthanized and bring them to our therapy kennel. We started with 4 dogs, now there are more than 100 dogs who went threw our cycle of giving.
The dogs go threw a special rehabilitation and training process in out kennel with the assistance of youth at risk and special needs people. The process is beneficial for the both sides as they enjoy the unique therapy qualities of the human – canine bond.
Our rescued, rehabilitated and trained dogs are now ready to go along with our skilled instructors to Dog Assisted Therapy activities across the country. We do Dog Assisted Therapy in a variety of settings which includes special needs and autistic facilities, youth at risk day care, senior citizens facilities. high school canine studies, PTSD patients and much more.
In the last phase, after the dogs had experienced a variety of exposure and are now qualified Therapy Dogs, we find them a new home which they can enjoy the rest of their lives with the guarantee of a good adjustment to their new family needs.
