The Bark Angels Therapy Dog Program at The Petz
We would love it if you and your dog would participate in The Bark Angels Therapy Dog Program. We help people with physical, emotional and cognitive challenges. Working one on one with patients and physical therapists, the certified therapy dogs inspire communication, sensory processing, mobility and social skills of ALL ages! We also do extensive programs with teens, youths and also do a lot of work with Autistic children.
Each of our certified dogs are handled by a trained volunteer. Our programs are developed with health care professionals to create specific movements with the patients needs in mind. It is exciting to see patients who refuse to do their physical therapy, light up knowing the dogs are coming and get up ready to work.
Our goals are:
*Create a large volunteer base with or without a dog in the program
*Create a donor base through fund raisers, events etc.
*Continue to provide the program free of charge to those who need us.
With your help, we can expand the program and reach more people. To help, click the “Donate” button below to donate online or mail a check (payable to The Bark Angels, Inc.) to The Petz Carlton, 1281 E Napier Ave MI 49022.
