Canine Programs

Our Mission:

The mission of LOVE HEELS is to train and partner canines with children and adults who have special needs. In addition, our canine graduates are placed with health care professionals whose clients are physically and/or developmentally disabled.

 

Puppies in Training:

Volunteers have no idea how wonderful the journey with a canine companion can be. It’s magic from the day you wrap your arms around this furry ball of innocence. You become both teacher and student. We need your help as much as the person who is waiting for a service dog.   Learn More »

 

Service Dog Teams:

Lives are changed when a person with a special need is partnered with a trained four-legged buddy. Alert dogs can warn of trouble; new worlds are opened for children diagnosed with autism. And, war veterans are finding life more tolerable with a little help from a friend.   Learn More »

 

Therapy Teams:

Sometimes the only thing that can bring peace and joy to a lonely or sick person is a dog. You’re welcome to sign up for the experience if your dog has the time and temperment. We train and test canine teams as well as offer visiting opportunities.   Learn More »
