Safe Harbor

I finished 30 hours of volunteer training yesterday with Safe Harbor, our local domestic violence organization. The training was required before I could talk with staff about creating a therapy dog program there. I hope to meet with them in February to discuss possibilities.

As I went through the training, I jotted down possible scenarios for using our dogs - especially with kids. They are:
  • support groups
  • court visits
  • outreach to teens

And, finally, the shelter might be a great place for a facility dog. I hope staff has more ideas. Some of them seemed excited about creating these kinds of opportunities.
