Volunteers are the heart of our pet therapy program and help drive the many events and efforts that bring awareness and funding to sustain and grow our program. Volunteers and their child-friendly, predictable, and well-mannered dogs become registered with Alliance of Therapy Dogs or Pet Partners and join Gabriel's Angels in executing our mission.
Volunteers' generosity with their time (one hour every week or every other week) will be richly rewarded in the hugs and gratitude of the children visited. During visits, the volunteer's time is spent engaging children in animal behavior, pet care, grooming, safety, and relating animal needs and behaviors to the children's needs and behaviors. Volunteers are given tools, teaching aids, and training in helping children achieve critical social skills.
