Canine Connections Program Launch

Canine Connections was borne from our love of our animals and a desire to share the benefits of what we do every day with our four-pawed partners.

The mission of Canine Connections is to make Animal Assisted Therapy accessible to the community through:

· Facilitation of programs for a variety of populations and needs

· Education – what is a therapy dog?

· Partnership with local agencies

· Professional in services and presentations

· Animal advocacy – health and well being

· Consulting – families and professionals

· Training – from puppy to placement

Our long-term goals include:

· Working with stakeholders and government toward legislation of therapy dogs

· Training of therapy dogs to assist in Child Advocacy Cases

· Program accreditation and education of Canine Connection facilitators

· Access to a court/facility dogs
