We are honored to know you are interested in making a difference by opening your doors to our Comfort Dog teams. Our ultimate goal is to comfort and lift spirits of service members, veterans, 1st Responders and their families. We have worked very hard to provide visits from happy, affectionate and well-trained Comfort Dogs at your facility or event, at no charge.
All of our Comfort Dog teams are specially trained, tested and registered with the nation's leading therapy animal organization, Pet Partners. We require all of our dogs have yearly health exams, testing for internal and external parasites and are current on all vaccinations.
TCD works with Command, FRG, Yellow Ribbon, City Officials, Crisis Event Coordinators & other Veteran/Military/1st Responder Family Organizations.
Our handlers are themselves service members, veterans and family members. Just like we would with our own families, we take OPSEC seriously when planning and visiting our Hero Families at your facility/event. All our handlers and volunteers have passed criminal background checks and adhere to our own security and confidentially policies.
Each team is assigned for 2 hours maximum. When our teams arrive and prior to leaving your facility or event, we sign in/out with the assigned contact person. Our teams always carry proper ID's and required documentation that are available for review at any time.
Prior to the initial visit, we will meet with you at your facility to help you plan visits and answer any questions you or your staff may have.
We look forward to working together with you and supporting all of our Hero Families.
****In an emergency situation, our teams can be called into service at your request, any time, day or night.
