About Us

How We're Helping



Canines 4 Comfort is a 501(c)3 organization established to satisfy the growing need for Psychiatric Service Dogs and Emotional Support Animals among Veterans, children, and others afflicted with emotional and trauma syndromes. 

Our organization provides resources, training, education, care, and support to the audiences we serve. Our primary focus includes individuals suffering from PTSD, anxiety and emotional disorders, depression, trauma, and other diagnosis for which a PSD or an ESA may provide relief. 

Services provided by Canines 4 Comfort are complimentary; however, as a nonprofit organization, we rely solely on the generosity of community donations to help us achieve our mission.  

Currently Canines 4 Comfort serves areas within a 90 mile radius of Round Lake, Illinois. Our formal training site is in Antioch, Illinois.

Community Outreach


We offer a professional program for our trained canines to visit and provide therapeutic value. Canines 4 Comfort can personalize visits to:   

  • Provide dog therapy to bring comfort and joy to residents and staff of assisted living, memory care, medical, and retirement communities
  • Bring educational and therapy dog services to local schools and counseling centers
  • Supply dogs to participate in read to dog programs at local libraries
  • Offer support in stressful environments such as:  
    • Court companions 
    • Grief counseling
    • Natural disasters  
    • Therapy groups
    • And most other circumstances where our dogs can  provide comfort
  • Home visits considered, when appropriate.
