Pets Helping People (PHP) is devoted to training big-hearted dogs and their sensitive humans to deliver pet therapy visits in the community. They have 175 active Handler/Dog teams that reach over 5000 people annually in residential communities, adult-day programs and reading programs for children. Joining us to discuss their mission is executive director Amy Dodge, along with handler teams Diane Miller & Irene, Beth Giacobassi & Koda, and Jennifer Ciucci & Birdie.
