Our Scout's Angels Canine Care Team supports communities in times of crisis or need by providing a healing outlet through dogs. The quickly growing Canine Care Team is comprised of certified therapy dogs and Canine Good Citizens dedicated to bringing comfort and smiles in furry form.
The power of therapy dogs is truly incredible. They help people, especially children, open up and communicate things that they might not share with a therapist or other adults - just having a therapy dog present can make a child more willing to talk. These pups also help to decrease feelings of isolation.
Our Team has made two trips to Newtown, CT where they witnessed the amazing ability of these animals to draw out a smile or a laugh from people healing from the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that occurred in December of 2012.
Please support our efforts by donating to assist with travel expenses and dog supplies so the Canine Care Team can spread love and healing to communities around the nation in times of need.
