Nonprofits with Therapy Dogs

Another possibility is to be able to provide therapy dogs for nonprofits to people as therapy dogs. The process can be hard. First, they must find the right Dog as a puppy and spend time training the dog for this work, and then finding a match with someone in need. It will take special staff to implement this type of program.
