Ann Chiappetta and Verona are one of our therapy dog volunteer teams. Verona used to serve double duty as Ann's guide dog - Ann is blind - and Ann spends her days helping people as a marriage and family therapist and trauma counselor. Ann also happens to be a poet.
We are constantly inspired by the incredibly individuals who make up our volunteer corps. Many of our volunteers, Ann and Verona among them, do a great deal to bring beauty and healing to people outside of their volunteer work.
Ann will be doing a book signing for her new book of poems next weekend on March 11th from 2-3:30pm in the Community Room at the Mamaroneck Public Library. Two of the poems are dedicated to Verona. We couldn't think of a more deserving dedicatee.

Judy and Ava have been a Good Dog team for almost 9 years and they dutifully visit Vassar Brothers Medical Center every week. @my_healthquest captured this photo of them on National Dress Up Your Pet Day! We're proud of the work that they and the rest of our volunteers do to help humans heal. #schnauzer #rescuedog #schnauzersofinstagram #schnauzersofig #therapydog #therapydogs #dogswithjobs #ava #judy #vassarbrothers #hospital #dogshelpinghumansheal #gdf #tgdf #volunteer #dogteam #nofilter

Wonderful stories like these warm our hearts on cold winter days. Barbara and her dog Coco provided support to Zoey and her family at the Ronald McDonald House. "We read several books with Zoey and played and when we left her mom asked to take a picture with Coco. As Zoey went to kiss Coco she whispered, 'I love you Coco.' This is why we volunteer!" #havanese #havaneseofinstagram #coco #therapydog #therapydogs #gdf #tgdf #workingdogs #blackdog #blackdogsofinstagram #kidsanddogs #dogsandkids #puppylove #gooddog #gooddogs #dogkisses #kisses #zoey @barbaramatarazzo

In this time of giving we ask for your consideration. We are responding to growing demand to train and deploy volunteer teams, helping hundreds of thousands of people recover from the trauma of disease, disability, and disaster, and undertaking vital research to advance the field of human-animal interaction. But we can't do it without your help. Make a gift of support and join our #gooddogstory: http://bit.ly/2hEGeHN (link also in bio).

With growing public demand, hundreds of therapy dog orgs have sprung up across the US, but there are no national standards to ensure quality or safety. Good Dog is partnering with @pennvetschool to undertake the first national survey of therapy dog training practices. Support the vital work of advancing our field and become a part of our #gooddogstory with a year end gift! Donation link in bio.

Good Dog is working with @yaleuniversity to assess how therapy dogs reduce stress in pre-teens, designing a study with American Federation for Aging Research to test how therapy dogs improve memory in patients with Alzheimers, and partnering with @paceuniversity using specially trained Good Dog teams to help female prisoners develop parenting skills and stay out of prison. You can support this research and become a part of our #gooddogstory by donating to Good Dog - donation link in bio!
