dogs helping humans heal
From our great upstate trainer Hanna - "These dedicated owners and their pups have been with us for a total of 11 weeks - through Therapy 1 and tonight graduating from Therapy 2 class. They are now certified therapy dog teams through The Good Dog Foundation and will soon be making official visits to partner facilities in our area. So proud of team Thandi, team Magpie, and team Sancho!"
A huge thank you to The Innovative CPA Group, LLC and Kristen Gilfeather! To celebrate their grand opening, the organization held a random drawing in which the winner could choose a charity of his/her choice to receive $500. Kristen was chosen and was kind enough to select Good Dog as her charity! We continue to be blown away by the generosity of our community and extend our deepest appreciation to both The Innovative CPA Group and Kristen for thinking of us.
Therapy dog Landry and the Good Dog family want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the @penguinrandomhouse team for their incredible fundraising efforts these past few weeks. Their team raised an astounding $51,000 for our organization. We feel so fortunate to be chosen as the nonprofit beneficiary of this year’s March of the Penguins and cannot thank them enough for their efforts.
This month, @penguinrandomhouse is hosting their annual charity walk and have chosen The Good Dog Foundation as their beneficiary. We are beyond grateful to them for their generosity! In addition to their efforts, PRG employee Michelle Quintero is raffling an amazing piece of her artwork to benefit our mission. This beautiful original painting perfectly encapsulates the bond between humans and dogs and it could be yours! So on this #NationalBestFriendDay, celebrate by entering to win this fantastic piece. All proceeds will go towards funding more therapy dog visits for those in need. The link is in our bio!

What a night! Thanks to everyone who came out for our 6th Annual Fetching Affair Gala celebrating nineteen years of helping humans heal using animal-assisted therapy! Big thanks to our host @jordynrolling and the Juilliard musicians who performed for our guests, Nicholas King and Kady Evanyshyn! It was our deepest pleasure to honor Dr. Kimberly Collica-Cox and @paceuniversity Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Criminal Justice and Security for their incredible work on our Parents, Prison, and Pups partnership! It was an incredible night, and we couldn't be more grateful for everyone who came to support us. Sending you all of our #gooddog love! ❤️😍🐶😍❤️
Landry is wearing his finest bow tie in preparation for next week’s Fetching Affair Gala! Dog tickets are sold out but human tickets are still available. Bid on exciting live and silent auction items, see old friends and make new ones, and enjoy an evening of music, cocktails, dinner, and, of course, all the #gooddogs your heart can handle. We hope to see you on May 18th!

After an amazing 11 years, Kirby the Miniature Pinscher is retiring! This little guy brought joy and kisses to the children at NAC for almost all of his 11 years on the job. We thank his mom Kelly for sharing him with us and their amazing dedication. We wish Kirby many treats and naps in his well-earned retirement.
After 9 years as a dedicated Good Dog, Dougal the Golden Retriever is hanging up his bandana! Dougal and his mom Pat visited Beth Israel’s inpatient drug rehab, and schools when harried students needed de-stressing. Dougal and family are retiring to Virginia. Thank you for your service, Dougal and Pat.
They will be missed!
