Caring K9s Teams
Our therapy dogs are pets, and at the end of a day’s visiting, they go home with their owner-handlers. We do not train our dogs to be service animals, but we do love the share them. Click below to see all our pet therapy teams.
Serving the Community
Therapy dog visits help to put a smile on people’s faces, brighten their day, or bring back cherished pet memories. Our teams visit many facilities and populations on Maui. Click below to read about the communities we serve.
Looking to Volunteer?
We are always looking for new volunteers to expand our services. The training and evaluation can take from a few weeks to three months depending on the handler and the dog. Click below to explore volunteer opportunities with us.
