“Along Came A Dog” | The Good Dog Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Gala
We invite you to celebrate 20 years of dogs helping humans heal and to support the incredible work of our Good Dog therapy teams.
This 20th anniversary year marks an incredible milestone for Good Dog. At our 20th Anniversary Gala, "Along Came a Dog," we will be honoring two very special people who have played a leading role in the success of the organization and we will be making a announcement that will help shape the Good Dog narrative for the next several years.
Through money raised from this event, we are able to help expand our Good Dog children's programs and healing to hundreds of thousands of cancer patients, veterans, seniors with Alzheimer's, and others who are suffering from trauma and stress.
Your Gala attendance supports Good Dog as we lead the way for Animal-Assisted Therapy in the US, including our work to:
- Expertly train hundreds of new volunteer therapy dog teams each year
- Deploy over 600 therapy teams across the states of New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Connecticut to volunteer at almost 300 hospitals, schools, assisted living facilities, and trauma centers
- Conduct groundbreaking research with noted academic and medical institutions on the science behind human-animal interactions
- Collect, analyze, and disseminate crucial data for improving therapy dog services nationally
Enjoy a lively evening of cocktails, gourmet dining, and live and silent auctions!
