Please contact John Connor (Contact Information) to let him know if you would be available on any of these dates. Once we finalize dates we will get back to our volunteers with more details.

There are still quite a few facilities that are not open for therapy visits yet. If you were making visits and are interested in starting back, please contact them directly to see if they are open yet.
Membership dues should be paid in February of each year. Dues are $50 per year and provide us with the ability to continue to have the funds needed to pay our insurance premium. The insurance covers you, your pet, and the locations we visit. We would not be able to provide this important benefit to our members without your annual dues payment. Checks can be made payable to Canines for Christ of Greater Cincinnati, and mailed to Steve Bader, 3121 Benninghofen Avenue, Hamilton, OH 45015. If you have any questions, please contact Steve (Contact Information).
