Compassionate Canine volunteer therapy dog teams visit in many settings. They typically visit
skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, veteran’s homes, schools, libraries, support

these facilities. Our therapy dog teams are flexible and open to visiting people in nearly any
environment, provided it is safe and secure for all parties involved.

organizations have strict health, temperament, and testing requirements and all provide
