Through the years, it has been noted that the presence of a dog helps those with special needs or those who are part of “at risk” populations. Support Dogs trains and places Facility Dogs to help in these situations. The dogs are paired with a teacher, therapist, or employee of a facility that works with targeted populations and the dog is incorporated into the therapy of these individuals. Placements have included dogs working with economically and socially challenged children, dementia and Alzheimer’s patients, and learning disabled students.
If you are interested in a Facility Dog, please fill out an application questionnaire to begin the process.
If you would like to help provide Facility Dogs at no cost to those who need them most, please consider making a gift.
