Furry Friends is a service that provides support and comfort through the unconditional love of Therapy Dogs to those living with physical and emotional difficulties, as well as those who would benefit from the presence of a calm, loving dog.
At scheduled events throughout the year, Furry Friends works in conjunction with certified, insured therapy dog organizations across the state to provide people with the opportunity to spend time with loving therapy dogs of all sizes and breeds.
Furry Friends has provided therapy dogs for Council on Aging, Memory Café, TriTown Council on Youth, and Parkinson Fitness events. We also work with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) providing therapy dogs for its Out of Darkness Walks at high schools, colleges and towns across central and eastern Massachusetts.
Who couldn't use unconditional love?! Dogs will wag their tails when you walk in a room. They listen to us tell stories - sometimes even more than once. They will sit with us when we cry and prance with us when we're happy. Sometimes they just sit by our side when we need some silence.
Come join our Furry Friends and let them bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart!
