Certified Dog Therapy Volunteers Needed
10 people are interested
We are currently full and not able to take on any new therapy dog volunteers. Please contact us to get on the waiting list.
Spread a Little Love with the Dog Therapy Program. A-B Tech Community College recognizes the positive influence that therapy dogs can have on student and staff and are currently seeking registered Dog Therapy Teams.
Not to be confused with service dogs, therapy dogs help by visiting and spreading kindness and providing comfort. Teams are needed to have regular routes on campus, visiting public areas, and staff offices. Teams also assist with special requests such as visiting classrooms before exams or special events on campus.
A-B Tech requires that all volunteers complete an application, criminal background check, provide copies of their Therapy Dog Certification and attend a new volunteer orientation session before starting.
