The PAWSitive Therapy Troupe is an all-volunteer not-for-profit animal-assisted therapy association. No Troupe member receives compensation of any kind for the many therapy visits made to hospitals, schools and nursing homes each year. We are dependent on the generosity of our supporters, who believe in the special impact that therapy dogs can have on human health and well-being.
Your donation to the PAWSitive Therapy Troupe will enable us to continue our mission of bringing our special therapy dogs to those who need them the most. Monetary donations in any amount are always appreciated.
Your donation will be used to support our therapy teams at the many health care and educational facilities that we visit.
You may also wish to make a donation to mark a special occasion, to honor someone special, or in memory of a special person or pet. We will gladly send a letter of thanks to your honoree, letting them know of your generosity.
Typical annual expenses for each therapy team:
||Annual purchases of therapy dog “calling cards” given to hospitalized children (see “Bonnie” above right)
||Cost of registering and equipping a new R.E.A.D. therapy dog
||Annual purchases of R.E.A.D. bookmarks given to students (see “Rosie” below)
||Cost of Pet Partners therapy dog registration and retesting every other year (required of every handler-dog team)
||Typical cost of annual continuing education of therapy dog teams
||Purchase of Troupe logo smocks, polo shirts, therapy dog vests / bandanas and identification badges for every new member
