East Coast Therapy Dogs

This is a group of volunteer therapy dogs  teach a community program where children and dogs learn to interact safely through carefully selected games and programs.

The audience will often comprise adults as well as others with special needs and children who are afraid of dogs, but are willing to learn!  

This talented group of certified dogs and their owners make a topical presentation, most months on the 3rd Saturday, at 1pm.

Watch the calendar for actual dates.
