Together Our Impact Grows


Last year 10,386 children and seniors with disabilities have benefited from 1 FUR 1’s animal assisted programs, always delivered free-of-charge. We’re proud of our accomplishment and offer sincere thanks to our indispensable volunteers, supportive donors, dedicated program partners and their amazing animals. We’re looking back and moving forward.

On the heels of such a great year, we received January 2020 reports from 27 actively working dogs and mini horses across five states; CA, MI, MO, IL and FL. The below listed monthly impact is paving the road for another wonderful year:
