Welcome to CANINES CARE: a team for therapy dogs, other companion animals and their handlers with particular focus on those who serve people in hospice care.
Several years ago my dog Roga and I attended therapy dog training classes at the WHS. The training we received enabled us to become a registered therapy dog team and we are now visiting hospice patients weekly. As a result of this experience, I can attest that caring canines have an unbelievably positive impact on those in hospice care and their family members. I have also seen the positive response from others I have encountered during my visits with Roga such as caregivers, visitors, other patients and residents.
But therapy dog training is only one of the many ways that WHS helps improve the quality of life for people and animals in Milwaukee, Ozaukee and Racine counties. Last year, for example, WHS found homes for more than 10,000 animals! WHS provides a range of critical services such as this, all without government funding. You can help WHS save homeless animals, train future therapy dogs and do so very much more by (1) sponsoring the Canines Care team’s walk by clicking "Support David" and/or (2) registering to join the Team for its walk on May 18 by clicking "Join David's Team".
Roga and I thank you in advance for your generosity and hope to see you on May 18th !
