Gabriel's Angels Charity Profile
Gabriel's Angels is the only program in Arizona that delivers healing pet therapy to abused, neglected and at-risk children. Our goals are to instill in children an overall emotional sense of well-being, safety and happiness, and to help them to learn social skills that will prevent them from continuing the cycle of violence as adults. Within the past year, our pet therapy program has grown by over 20%. We currently provide pet therapy services to nearly 100 agencies and serve over 12,000 children each year. Our services are provided free of charge to the agency and its children. Gabriel's Angels pet therapy services are provided by volunteer pet therapy teams, usually consisting of a dog and its owner. Teams visit each participating agency on a consistent schedule, interacting with the children and staff. Because response to our pet therapy program has been so positive in the communities we serve, we currently have 39 agencies on a waiting list to begin services. In order to meet this need, Gabriel's Angels seeks to expand our current pet therapy program through recruiting, training and placing additional pet therapy teams. The cost to recruit, train, place and monitor one therapy team for one year is $2,500.
