    I think what you are doing is great!! I would like to do this myself. I have rescued one dog and we are now a certified therapy dog team. I think you met the leader of our therapy dog organization in Dorchester, NE–Gale Lothrop. We are planning on rescuing another dog soon. Thanks for all you are doing for people and animals! God bless you in your travels, as you are blessing others!

    Denver Children’s Home
    Thank you so much John and Kait for taking the time during your long and impressive journey to visit Denver Children’s Home! It was an honor to meet you, Jon, Max, Grace, Jenny and Old Brown Dog. The children had a blast as they listened to your stories and asked their many questions. Since our children receive pet therapy here at DCH, your dedication to spreading the word about the importance of pet therapy did not go unnoticed. It was an important experience for our children to see and meet people in the community who are fighting to help give them the tools needed to heal and grow. Thank you for being a champion for abused and neglected children across America! We wish you enormous success in promoting pet therapy, animal rescue, and the positive impact that a fulfilling relationship with animals can have on our health and quality of life. Please keep in touch!
