Since 2003, The Bark Angels has recruited, trained and supervised dogs and volunteers for physical therapy sessions at hospitals, Lakeland HealthCare, Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly PACE), and assisted living.  We also serve at the Boys and Girls Club of Benton Harbor, teaching vocational and character skills, and BGC youth center helping youths who have lost someone through divorce, death, or imprisonment. The Bark Angels’ Therapy Dogs, are regularly used as advocates for children and adults who have been diagnosed with autism, e.g. Ansari Autism Learning Center and at the Niles Public Library. Our Therapy Program has also teamed with the Therapeutic Equestrian Center, and in 2019, we are working with Veterans for the first time as well as Lory’s Place helping with the grief process. The Bark Angels Therapy Dogs help with physical, emotional and cognitive challenges. Working one on one with patients and therapists, they inspire communication, sensory processing, mobility, and social skills. Canines have a way of drawing patients out of their emotional isolation and into a state of mind allowing progress toward recovery. Our mission and our goals are the same…to continue to help our community one paw at a time!

FREE EVENT FOR ALL VETERANS!
