Caring Canines Pet Therapy Teams

Caring Canines is a pet therapy program created by Dogwood Acres Pet Retreat to provide certified pet therapy teams who offer unconditional love and a peaceful presence to those in need in our community.

Caring Canine’s mission is to partner with local organizations to provide volunteer pet therapy teams who enrich lives by promoting physical and emotional health, and to help comfort and bring happiness to those in need.

Therapy Opportunities are Limitless:

  • Peaceful presence for hospice patients, residents of assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and hospital patients of all ages.
  • Reading companionship for child literacy programs.
  • Comforting support for victims of domestic violence.
  • Soothing care for victims of natural disasters.
  • Stress relief for caregivers, students, employees, and anyone in need.
