Helping at-risk children through Pet Therapy

Founded in 2000 by Pam Gaber and Weimaraner, Gabriel, Gabriel’s Angels mission is to inspire confidence, compassion, and best behaviors in at-risk children through pet therapy. Pet Therapy Teams visit crisis nurseries, domestic violence and homeless shelters, and Title one schools all in an effort to intervene in children’s lives and enhance their emotional and behavioral development by teaching core behaviors – attachment, confidence, self-regulation, affiliation, empathy, tolerance, and respect.

Gabriel’s Angels provides a non-threatening venue to learn self-control and sensitivity.
