Paws with Compassion ® , ,
Paws with Compassion was started by a group of therapy/crisis response handlers who wanted to work together to improve the training and handling of K-9 therapy and crisis response teams. Members of Paws with Compassion are diverse and together, cover a wide range of therapy dog and crisis response needs in local communities.  The group was formed to be supportive of handlers and their dogs whatever they choose/are able to do. By being an organized group, we can better serve our communities with therapy and crisis response dogs and better support our teams in their ongoing efforts.
