Your Support


Therapy Dogs of Rockland is not a huge charity with vaguely-defined needs. We are a relatively small organization, and our expenses are quite specific.


Your support enables us to continue our valuable healing work bringing the joy of human-animal companionship to children, the elderly, the ill and injured, and the simply stressed out.
