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 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. Unfortunately she is heartworm positive and going through treatment now. We believe she is about 9 or 10 years old. She is loyal and loves to play with her toys. If you would like to meet Gretchen, complete our application to see if it might be a good fit!
