Hope K-9 Teams

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Hope Animal-Assisted Crisis Response was at the Billings Clinic recently as part of the McGuire Conference held there. They are an all-volunteer national non-profit organization whose goal is to provide comfort and encouragement to those affected by all sorts of crises and disasters, such as the recent shooting in Washington, D.C., and the floods in Colorado. The team spent the day networking with police and councilors. The dogs on the team are trained to handle any situation.

Team Leader Harry Schlitz gave an example of the impact the dogs on the team can have:

"Even here today, we've had a couple of incidents just here promoting what we do with these law enforcement and councilors that work in domestic abuse. And there's been a couple of things where we had some tears already, just because the people recognize that, or just lost their dog, so you never know."

The organization is in need of more volunteers. If you are interested in joining, click on Connections.
