Welcome To "C.A.R.E "(Canine And Responder Engagement) PEER Support Program
We are a team of dedicated volunteers and trained therapy dogs that provide comfort, support, and healing to first responders and the community they serve. Our mission is to promote mental wellness, reduce stress, and strengthen the bonds between first responders and their communities.
We understand that first responders and their families may experience trauma, loss, or difficult circumstances as a result of their work. That's why we offer visits to first responder stations and community outreach events, where our therapy dogs provide an opportunity for first responders and the community to take a break from their daily stressors and engage with our friendly and loving dogs. This interaction can help to reduce stress, promote mental wellness, and strengthen the bonds between first responders and their communities.
Our therapy dogs and volunteers are carefully selected. They have a unique ability to provide a calming presence and bring a sense of joy and comfort to those they interact with. Our dogs are highly trained, well-behaved, and certified through reputable organizations.
At our core, we believe that mental health is just as important as physical health, and we strive to promote the importance of self-care and mental wellness within the first responder community. We are passionate about what we do and are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of those we serve.
