Therapy dogs visit Charleston, SC bringing relief and hope to a city struck by tragedy
As animal lovers, we hardly need a reminder of the healing ability that our dogs have. Following last week's church shootings in Charleston, South Carolina, therapy pets have been playing an important role in bringing relief to the community. But simply seeing pictures and stories of therapy dogs can be equally as important for breaking up all of the negativity we see on the news. Many of us around the world are heartbroken by the events, even th...

Slumber Parties Lead to Successful Dog Adoptions in AZ AAWL & SPCA
Most of us remember slumber parties as a great time to have fun, stay up late, play and just be ourselves while hanging out with our friends. Well, it’s not so different for shelter dogs and cats looking for new homes and families. At the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA in Phoenix, we put this idea into practice. In 2013, we began allowing our dogs (and cats) to go home for a few days with potential adopters.

Live from Brooklyn: Canine Improv
The play I was watching was just 10 minutes in when a black Labrador jumped up next to me and settled in for a nap. This was going to be no ordinary theater experience. I was at JACK, a performing-arts space in Brooklyn, N.Y., to see Comfort Dogs: Live from the Pink House, the latest experimental play written and directed by William Burke. The Labrador, Gypsy, along with mixed-breed pups Bronco and Bluet, was part of the play’s canine cast.

I’ve done temperament testing, adoption counseling, vet tech, management and now animal control offi...

New York City expands its courtroom therapy dog program to adults.
Testifying against an abuser is an experience that can run the gamut of emotions--from deep anger to paralyzing fear. Recognizing how intimidating this process can be, New York began allowing dogs in the courtroom in 2011 to support children on a case-by-case basis. The program has been successful and this week marked the first time that a dog was allowed to accompany an adult in a New York City courtroom.
