We are VIP Dog Teams

VIP Dog Teams is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving people’s health through positive interactions with therapy and facility dogs. Our mission is to promote the human-animal bond that transforms lives and leads to healing.

VIP Dog Teams is proud to be an affiliate of Pet Partners. Together we believe that the human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial relationship that improves the physical, social, and emotional lives of those we serve. We are motivated by connection, compassion, and a commitment to sharing this meaningful bond with everyone who can benefit from time spent with an animal.

Therapy dogs

We're all about Therapy!

We impact our community with service and companionship, whether that be at a bedside in a hospital, in reading programs at schools or community programs like the Boys and Girls Club. Therapy is what we do and what we believe in.

Do you want to bring joy and improve lives in your community, all while spending time with your dog? JOIN US VIP Dog Teams offers training for your dog, and in collaboration with Pet Partners we also offer training for you, as the human side of the therapy team is just as important!

Our VIP therapy dogs are used in animal assisted intervention with members of the community to help people rehabilitate, learn, and grow.
