Puppy Love Therapy Dogs, Inc. is based in south central Minnesota, the Mankato and New Ulm area. We are a group of volunteers
who take their dogs to various nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, schools or any place where a visit from
our dogs would brighten someone's day. All Puppy Love Therapy Dogs visits are offered free of charge as a community service.
The visits last about 30-60 minutes and usually take place in a community room. We typically take several dogs to a visit,
but we also have an individual "Hug a Pet" program that is focused on children in need of a friend.
We are a tax deductible corporation under 501(c)(3), making all donations tax deductible.
All the dogs in our
group have been trained and tested in accordance with Therapy Dogs International or Therapy Dogs Incorporated (nationally
known therapy dog organizations.) Our dogs must be well behaved, well groomed, social with both people and other dogs, and
must be comfortable in numerous situations.
