Believing in Kids - Empowering Lives - One Dog at a Time
Kids and Canines provides trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities and children with autism throughout central Florida. The dogs also change the lives of at-risk middle school students, who learn to care for, groom, and train the dogs during the school day at the Dorothy Thomas Center in Tampa. After training, our dogs go on to assist individuals with disabilities in performing daily tasks, help children with autism lead fuller, more independent lives and ease stress on parents and family members. Our dogs also work with professionals in schools, health care facilities and crisis counseling centers.
