Therapy Upcoming Events

Hearts of Gold Events

Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic all our events were cancelled and our facility visits suspended for most of 2020. As we start to see some improvement and confidence in our communities, facilities are starting to open outside visits following the CDC guidelines and we are accepting invitations for outside therapy visits from facilities, schools, universities etc. with safety protocols in place for outdoor contact with dogs and their handlers.  If you wish to request a Hearts of Gold therapy visit, click this link for your request.  You will be contacted as soon as possible to discuss and answer any questions you may have.

We have kept our therapy teams together and busy.  They so desperately want to get back to work and visit their people again!  Please visit our latest news page to see what our teams have been up to during this down time.


First Fridays of the Month:

The East Coast therapy team will be visiting the Fountains of Melbourne on the first Friday of each month starting with Friday, April 2, 2021 at 10:30 am.   We will be outside behind the main building in the pool / garden area. Mask and hand sanitizer protocols are still in place and please wear your logo shirt and vest for pup.
