How exactly does that work? Do you have to call the hospial/shelter/school up first? I'm reading over all this paperwork and not seeing info on that. Perhaps after I send it all in.
I just have to get her fecal done and have the vet sign the health clearance and we're all set.
Now, a question for those already doing it. I have a cousin that will be in the hospital for chemo & radiation. Am I allowed to bring Jasmine as a therapy dog to see her? (if the hospital accepts therapy dogs)
She is through TDI.

Yep, I just contact the places I want to go see. They should have sent you local groups and information on places they visit, however, you do not have to strictly use their places as well.
You can blaze your own trails. ;)
The cancer ward COULD be something you could do, but remember that many people are severely compromised regarding infections as Chemo kills the bad as well as the good and it would depend on individual situations. It NEVER hurts to ask.
Home health is another big one. Alot of people who get meals on wheels and are shut ins really appreciate the visits.

Congratulations!!! Thats awesome!!!! My Jack Bauer a cardigan welsh corgi was tested this summer and he was the youngest Humane Hearts had to pass the test! He was 7 months old. I've gone thru the workshop and now have to go with a couple of members and their dogs to learn the ropes. I will be going to nursing homes as well as an autistic class at the elementary school nearby. I think it is a wonderful way to help people and love that I get to do this with my baby Jack!
