Do you have a registered therapy or service dog that wants to help our local military population? Join our exceptional Canine Comfort Crew! Therapy dogs are known to lower blood pressure, reduce stress, and even release oxytocin. Our nation’s service members are responsible for the safety and security of our country and with that comes an enormous amount of strain. They are often far from their homes or deployed for long periods of time - remote from family and friends. Bringing a slice of home to the men and women wearing the cloth of our nation is what the USO does best; and our four-legged team helps further our vital mission. Come what may, the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia will always be there with a helping hand, a listening ear, and a carefree canine to make a service member’s day just a little bit easier.
For more information, please email ContactUs@usohrcv.org and we will send you an application. We are currently accepting qualified teams who have been certified by Therapy Dogs International, Love on a Leash and Pet Partners.
