As we learn more about the spread of the coronavirus across the USA, we are taking drastic measures to ensure that our partners, volunteers and all working animals are safe. All of our group animal assisted activities sessions have been suspended in March. The only programs that will remain open are 1-1 animal assisted therapy sessions for children with disabilities in the San Diego area and Florida Panhandle. We’ve elevated the infectious disease safety protocols and will provide additional details as they become available about the future of our programs and scheduled events.
During the month of love, the #1fur1impact exponentially grew because of the 36 hard-working dogs and mini horses. We even had a new member join the pack; please be sure to check out all 1fur1 news and learn the latest updates, here.
