Rim of the World Comfort Pets exists to promote health and improve the quality of life for individuals through the animal-human interactions that come from animal assisted activities and therapy. Our certified therapy animal-handler volunteer teams work to help heal individuals, elevate the professional standards in the therapy animal field, and promote the general cause of volunteerism.
Students Visit with Therapy Dogs at CHE in Running Springs
Rim of the World Comfort Pets are participating in a weekly reward program at Charles Hoffman Elementary School in Running Springs. The students earn “reward dollars” for good behavior. Those dollars can be spent on a visit with the dogs!
Amazon Smile is your way to support us with your shopping. Thank you all so much for your fun family Amazon shopping and helping your therapy dogs reach out and help those who need it the most.
Diane Wiltsie and her fabulous team mate Dobby are a fabulous addition to our PAWS ABOVE THE REST. At the 4 of July Picnic she spent the whole day nurturing and encouraging the multitude of children who came to play our DOG RACES game.
