Pet Therapy is the foundation of our group, showing Christ's love through giving. Our teams visit places like assisted living, nursing homes, and other facilities in the Greater Cincinnati area. We also have teams involved in the READ program through local libraries which are designed to encourage children to read. We visit schools, girl & boy scout troops, and other groups to talk about pet therapy and dog safety.
We are an approved Therapy Dog Organization through the American Kennel Club. You and your dog can be certified by our organization to be eligible to receive the AKC Therapy Dog title.
If you have questions or would like to make a donation to our organization, please contact Steve Bader or Diana Dawson (Contact Information).
