Therapy Dog Teams must have completed certification through St. Johns Ambulance Therapy Dog Program , Caring K9 Institute, or other recognized therapy dog program.  Therapy Dog Certificate and proof of vaccinations are required.

Therapy Dog Team Volunteers contribute to improving the social, psychological, and physiological wellbeing of clients by providing positive experiences with certified therapy dogs.  Therapy Dog interactions promote well-being, stimulate positive memories, and reduce stress and anxiety.  Therapy Dog Teams are active in many of our Therapeutic Recreation and Rehabilitation areas.
