We receive requests for visits all the time and welcome new teams who are ready for exciting and rewarding volunteer opportunities with their dogs.

Purebreds and mixed breeds are accepted.  The dog must be at least one year of age, in good general health and enjoy being around people of all ages–that’s a must!  Also, the dog needs to have been with its owner for at least one year.

Training in basic obedience is crucial and the registering organization will require each team to pass an evaluation, as well as a health screening by a qualified veterinarian.

We can guide you through the process of becoming a nationally registered therapy dog team with Alliance of Therapy DogsPet Partners or Therapy Dogs Int’l. 

Once you are a registered team, then you may fill out an application to become a member of Paws to Heal.

Helping those in need in your community with a therapy dog is a wonderfully fulfilling and enjoyable experience–Come on and join us!
