For "18" Years 

Welcome to Caring Canines Therapy Dogs, Inc. We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit  Therapy Dog organization founded in September 2003. Our purpose is to share the love and joy of our canine companions — trained and tested Therapy Dogs — with others. Our dogs come in all shapes and sizes, pure breed and mixed breeds.

As Caring Canines Therapy Dogs, Inc. we visit area nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, libraries, schools, child care centers and camps for the seriously ill children in Lake County, Florida. A Therapy Dog visitation can:

  • Encourage a withdrawn patient or older adult to respond

  • Relieve loneliness and depression

  • Lower a patient's blood pressure and heart rate

  • Facilitate conversation and interaction

  • Stimulate minds, lift spirits and spark memories

  • Help a child practice reading skills

  • Calm a hyperactive child

  • Provide a welcome change from daily routine to staff as well as patients

  • Bring some fun!


Is your dog friendly, healthy, well-behaved and happy?  If so, he or she is probably qualified to become a Therapy Dog.  The Therapy Dog registration process  involves testing your dog for basic obedience skills and appropriate personality traits, and observing your ability to handle your dog in a safe and effective manner.  A health certificate and proof of current required vaccinations for your dog is required.  The process is not difficult, time-consuming, or expensive and we encourage all interested persons to explore the possibilities! If you are interested in getting your dog certified,  membership in Caring Canines can help you through the process.

**  All of the members of Caring Canines are volunteers. We are never paid for the visitations we make to the various facilites that we visit. Our work comes from the goodness of our hearts, doing what we love to do.  If you are interested in making a donation to our organization, as stated above we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deducible and greatly appreciated.
