To spread hope and healing by providing Animal-Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT), primarily with giant breed Newfoundland dogs, to Veterans, military families, first responders, healthcare workers, and people overcoming
trauma or illness.
Watch as Chewie the Therapy Newfie thanks some of his favorite medical staff.
Before COVID-19, 84% of First Responders experienced trauma. That number has grown dramatically. We work with EMS, fire & police stations to offer safe, in-person, and creative virtual stress-relieving Animal-Assisted Activity solutions.
Our Animal-Assisted therapy teams are visiting with Veterans and military families in person, utilizing masks and safe distancing while our Newfies spread their love, close up and personal. There's nothing quite like seeing someone who served this country, melting in the presence of a massive Newfie.
Our Newfie Therapy teams bring joy and stress relief to patients who are fighting serious illnesses, overcoming trauma or battling substance abuse, and the healthcare workers who are helping them heal. Our teams visit hospitals lifting spirits and reducing stress everywhere they go!
