Rim of the World Comfort Pets

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.

Above & Beyond Spirit: Diane

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. 

Newest teams - February 2018

Welcome Team Sheamus ! Handlers Kelly and Keith were the lucky winners of a rescue lottery (there so many people wanted to adopt Sheamus that the facility decided to draw a name). Congratulations to our newest teams.

Visiting at Cajon High School

Rim of the World Comfort Pets helped many of the students at Cajon High School in San Bernardino, CA as they “de-stressed” before finals. One person had never pet a dog before this day. In the end, he asked to take Jet home with him!
