MISSION OF A THERAPY DOG
Residents or patients of the facilities we serve represent numerous mental and physical health issues. Loneliness is one of the largest growing problems in America. Therapy dogs fill a need in nursing homes to touch and to be touched. The human-dog bond can have profound physiological advantages. People visiting with our dogs experience a decrease in blood pressure, reduced anxiety, and a general sense of well-being. Physically and mentally challenged children can learn to be more nurturing and gentle with contact from our dogs. Alzheimer’s patients remember our dogs’ names even though other memories are fading.

We are always looking for responsible handlers and well-mannered dogs to join our team. If your dog is at least 1 year old and you are interested in becoming a therapy dog team, contact us through our Website or call Joan and Jessica Lyn at 727-0539.
