The Alliance of Therapy Dogs website says:

ATD provides testing, certification, registration, support, and insurance for members who volunteer with dogs to visit hospitals, special needs centers, schools, nursing homes, and other facilities. We’re a network of caring volunteers who are willing to share our special canines to bring smiles and joy to people, young and old alike.”

Last year we found 58 therapy dog programs in the USA. Not all the programs are full-time therapy dog programs. For instance, some airports have one dog, while airports like LAX have dogs daily. Some airport therapy dog programs even have dedicated social media pages like SFO Airport, Wag Brigade.

The Therapy Dog Ambassadors of Charleston International Airport will visit the terminals Thursday and Sundays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

These loveable dogs are guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face.
