Testimonials

“I just wanted you to know how very grateful we are to Canine Assisted Therapy. Your organization has helped and touched our residents so much. First, we had the “Pet Parade” a few weeks ago and now for the first time, volunteer Lori Bale visited us with Zoom in the living room on the big screen yesterday. Despite the challenges of the past few weeks with people and pets unable to visit, you still had a volunteer from her home brighten the day. The work of your volunteers is so appreciated. As Martin Luther King so eloquently said, "To be a volunteer you only need a heart of grace and a soul generated by love." Your volunteers are all this and more. Thank you.”

“We loved having you visit and share the love you have for each other with our pediatric patients. Your mastery and talent for giving is overwhelming. I wanted you to know how important your visits are to all of us, as it provides fuel for our patient heroes and you have become a hero of my heart."

“My name is Grace and I’m a survivor of the MSD shooting. I just wanted to say thank you so much for
sending the therapy dogs to our school every day! It really helps me adjust to school and stay calm throughout
all that is happening.”

“Hello. I am the parent of a junior at Douglas and we went back on the campus yesterday for the first time since 2/14. We saw your therapy dogs all over, and I just wanted to personally thank you for being present. I hope you have some idea of how comforting and helpful it was to these kids to see. My daughter and I met Fergie, a Goldendoodle, and she talked about her for an hour afterwards, which is a nice break for her from talking about funerals, deceased friends and even going back to school. It’s such an amazing thing you do.”

“Canine Assisted Therapy has been referring therapy dogs to visit our children and families staying at the Quantum House for over two years. This group has allowed for therapy dogs to relieve the stresses that our children face every day by being in the hospital and receiving treatment. These therapy visits bring such big smiles to our kids’ faces. I have seen the impact on our children just by having therapy dogs visit them on a weekly basis. The volunteers from Canine Assisted Therapy are reliable and we appreciate all they do for all families. We appreciate the dedication that Canine Assisted Therapy provides and we hope to continue working with them well into the future.”

“I would just like to take a moment to thank you for all of the support that you, your volunteers, and your dogs have shown to our students, teachers, and staff. I truly believe that your volunteers and dogs have made a tremendous difference in our movement towards healing. We will forever remember your kind volunteers and their dogs and how much love we received from petting them. They were true givers of therapy to us that we desperately needed.”
