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.
Gabriel’s Angels serves 15,200 abused, neglected, and at-risk children in Arizona through the application of innovative pet therapy. The program’s goal is to increase the overall sense of well-being and happiness for children in a safe environment and to build critical core behaviors, such as trust, empathy, respect, tolerance, and self-esteem.
