More Than Just a Second Chance
The Canine Healing Project is a non-profit affiliate of The Noble Dog Hotel, located in Greenville, SC. The project focuses on working with the local shelter and rescue groups to identify dogs with the potential to be trained as therapy dogs. Some of our dogs will not have the best temperament to move forward as a therapy dog, however they will still remain in our program until their furever family is found.
These noble dogs reside at The Noble Dog Hotel during their training. We urge each adopter to become certified as a handler for the dogs we deem appropriate to be therapy certified. Once certified, the dog/handler team can participate in the community therapy dog program, which involves visits to local hospitals, schools, nursing homes, special needs centers, and more.
Therapy dogs provide a valuable service to the community, but they are not to be mistaken with service dogs, who provide a specific service to individual owners. We hope you take some time to learn more about the wonderful dogs we have in our program!
Gretchen came to us in Aug of 2022 to escape a life living outside with little human interaction. As a puppy she was part of the family and even well trained in her native tongue. However, she found herself living her life outside, mainly alone. Gretchen became part of our family at Noble Dog, and sadly she passed May 2nd, from what we believe to have been colon cancer. She never found her furever home, but we like to think she was always meant to stay with us. We love you Gretchen. We will always miss you. Thank you for making all of us better humans. RIP sweet girl.
