Available information about our program
The GRRMF Hearts of Gold therapy program is an extension of community service which GRRMF offers in addition to providing rescue services and dog care education. Our wonderful rescues and family pets are giving back to their communities by providing comfort, lifting spirits and making a PAWsitive impact on someone’s life during a therapy visit. These special canines have so much compassion to give to others and totally enjoy the interaction with each person or child. Our therapy dogs help students with stress relief during exams, open communication gaps with seniors, are involved with reading programs in schools and libraries, and bring smiles to those in memory care centers and hospitals.
Our program invites any interested dog friendly dog and owner to become a volunteer and to open your heart to those in need throughout the communities we serve.
Here is some wonderful information available on our website for your use:
