Caregiver Canines® is a free pet therapy program which began in 2009 and is offered through CVCJ. All dogs in the program are certified for pet therapy and are matched with a homebound senior living in their area. Visits are flexible, generally weekly, working within the handler’s schedule to make it convenient. The dogs and handlers enjoy it as much as the seniors they are visiting.
