WHAT DOES THE FUR ANGEL GROUP DO?
The Fur Angels is a group of trained, certified therapy dogs - along with their trained volunteer human handlers - who travel throughout Metro Detroit to bring four legged happiness to those who need it most.
HOW DO THE FUR ANGELS OPERATE?
Organizations, schools, senior centers get in touch with the group. Visit schedules are set up and volunteers organized for the visit.
At the agreed time, a group of therapy dogs (typically 2 - 6 as required) turns up (with their owners!), and are escorted to the required location.
During the visit, we meet and greet, the dogs are petted and held, sometimes dog "trading cards" are given out. It is very relaxed and low key, yet very rewarding - for all parties.
The best way to understand the visits is just to look at the photos.....
