Helping Hands

If you would like to help on visits but don’t have a registered therapy dog, you can assist a Pet Therapy Team on regular visits as a Helping Hand volunteer. You will go with a registered team on the same schedule to one of our facilities. A Helping Hand Volunteer qualifies and receives the same training as a volunteer with a pet.

You will form close friendships with your therapy team and know that you are making a difference in the lives of children. We promise that the feeling you get from being with these remarkable animals and children together is all the reward you will need!
