Barrio Therapy Dogs works to bring healthy, trained rescued dogs to area nursing homes, children’s homeless shelters and adult centers to bring companionship as well as comfort and encouragement to people in need.

Often, people are inspired to hear how the visiting therapy dog survived extreme difficulties, disease and danger and became a loving service dog.


Therapy dogs can provide a much needed change of pace for both adults and children at these facilities.
