St. John Ambulance’s Therapy Dog Program has proven to be a great success.

Volunteers travel to multiple facilities including hospitals, retirement homes, high schools and libraries. The dogs provide companionship, as well as the many health benefits of reducing stress and loneliness.

This program survives with the help of volunteers and their furry friends. Anyone interested in helping out can contact St. John and participate in testing to ensure that this program is right for you and your dog.
