Our Healing Paws and Humane Education Programs

It's those Hot August Nights  and days! Please take extra care to provide your dog with lots of water, cool places to rest, and avoid hot cars and hot sidewalks as much as possible.

 Our Healing Paws (Therapy Dog teams) have continued normal visits to libraries, hospitals, assisted living, and hospice locations. Keeping our dogs cool and safe  while travelling to locations can be challenging but seeing the joy our dogs bring makes all worth while.

 Our Humane Education teams is busily planning for the upcoming school year when we  will again be presenting Dog Safety and Dog Body Language training classes to k-4th grade students.

You can visit our 2019 News and Events Page to view the exciting events our volunteers have participated in while serving the Treasure Valley.
