About Us

How We're Helping

image6

We are a nonprofit organization recognizing the positive impact Psychiatric Service Dogs (PSDs) and Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) can offer an individual when prescribed and trained correctly. 


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

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 comfort and therapeutic value to residents and staff of assisted living, memory care, medical, and retirement communities
  • Bring educational and therapeutic 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.
