The Good Dog Foundation
New York, New York
The Good Dog Foundation (Good Dog) was founded as a
501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1998 to promote
the use of animal-assisted therapy. Good Dog’s
mission is to elevate the stature and promote
society’s understanding of the therapeutic value of
the human-animal bond. This is accomplished through
the use of professionally-trained and supervised
volunteer teams who work to aid the healing process
in humans and enhance clients’ quality of life.
Good Dog provides therapy dog services to people in
health care, social service, educational and
community facilities in New York, New Jersey,
Connecticut and Massachusetts, and at disaster sites
around the country. Its highly-trained and fully-
certified volunteer teams each consist of a human
handler and therapy dog. Good Dog focuses on work
in the four divisions of Education, Health Care and
Wellness, Research, and Disaster Response.
Good Dog’s ultimate goal is to increase the
awareness and prevalence of fully-certified therapy
teams in a wide variety of facilities across the
country. This is achieved through three core
activities: training and certification, visit
coordination, and research and awareness.
