In the fall of 2009, I discovered the fun of painting dogs. I had been looking for a way to incorporate my career into a new venture that would allow me to give back at the same time. I had never really painted a dog until we met a Golden Retriever named Lucy.
Considering a new dog, we shied away from rescue, fearing we would choose an untrainable dog. Hoping to enlighten us, a friend of ours named Gwen encouraged us to come and meet her rescued therapy dog, Lucy. Read More
The goal of our calendar is to show the incredible potential of rescued dogs when given a second chance. We share 12 wonderful dogs who, along with their owners, are making a real difference in the volunteer work they do. Each calendar month features the painting of one of these great dogs and a picture of the dog and its’owner. Read how they found each other, and their journey to become a therapy dog team.
Hopefully we can inspire you to find your own perfect match through rescue. And for those who think they might enjoy volunteering with their dogs as much as these teams do, we list the links that can give information, answer your questions and get you started in the right direction. In our search we also discovered there is a serious shortage of therapy animals. Most therapy clubs can only fill a fraction of the requests they receive.
