Facility Dogs

Dogs in Schools

We are proud to be one of the few organizations who provide highly trained dogs to work in schools. These dogs work with children of all ages with a variety of academic, social and emotional needs. Our volunteers and trainers have extensive knowledge working in schools — we have several retired teachers on staff who help train the facility dogs in our Dogs In Schools program, along with our trainers who train service dogs for children who attend school and have special needs. Our executive director is uniquely qualified to run this program with her 20 plus years as a school psychologist working in an inner-city school district. This year (2021) we have placed ten dogs!
