Congratulations on joining the Newfie Therapy team!
Whatever your role, whatever you're capable of doing to help us spread the joy of animal-assisted therapy (AAT), we thank you!
You are changing the world.
As a volunteer, you'll be able to find the forms and information you need to support your work. If there is something that isn't here, but you'd like to see or have easy access to, please let us know... this is your site. It's here to help you, so that you, can keep helping others.
All Volunteers need to fill out and sign this form. Click on Tessa above for the link.
We're a small 501c3 non-profit organization, and this should be the first step for any volunteer interested in becoming part of the Newfie Therapy team. Whether you're interested in doing animal-assisted therapy and you are just beginning to train your dog but need our help along the way, or you are already a registered therapy dog handler. If you help in other areas of the organization, this form needs to be submitted.
Please sign and submit this release. Sharing images of our precious Newfoundlands helps promote their awesome and unique personalities. You can also use this link when you get great pictures with other people, have them sign it right on your phone.
Use this form after every Animal Assisted Activity (AAA). It only takes 2 minutes and you can do it on your phone. This helps us track the impact of Newfoundland therapy dogs and could earn you special rewards and gifts (for you and your Newf). Did you also know that you can record video visits with your Newfie, these are called Animal Related engagements (ARE's). If you need a report of your visit to earn AKC titles just let us know and we can print it off for you.
This form helps us track what you're doing and how much time you're spending doing it. Are you training your Newfie for therapy work, or working on new tricks to help your therapy dog expand their capabilities? If you have committed to being a part of the Newfie Therapy team as a volunteer, start tracking your work with your Newfie. If you're helping with technology, social media, or grooming the Newfie team, please track your activities here. You may just earn a special reward!
Learning to communicate with veterans is critical to be successful in your interactions with them. We ask all of our volunteers to take these short, free online classes to be able to better serve the veteran community.
Spend a few minutes and start with this one course. Let us know when you've completed it... it will help you, help our heroes.
