In early 2006, Gabriel’s Angels was contacted by a Tucson resident who inquired about bringing our Pet Therapy program to Tucson. Seed funding was obtained prior to launch from KB homes and a few other small grants. Two Pet Therapy Teams were placed at Casa de los Ninos in late 2006. Since 2006 we have grown to 40 Therapy Teams and 25 Helping Hands. Currently, these Therapy Teams visit 35 agencies and serve over 4,000 at-risk children every year in Southern Arizona.
