Our therapy dogs provide love and support through mental health wellness sessions in schools and hospices

Between Sunday night and Wednesday night over $25,000 worth of equipment was stolen from our work-van after a therapy dog event at UBC (police report VA19-114048). Our van was parked at Henshaw lane at Cardero st. (West End). All of the custom-made harnesses, leashes, collars, ID badges, cooling-gel dog-mats, equipment bags and purses for 50 of our therapy dogs were all stolen. Even the only dog stroller we had for one of our handicapped therapy dogs was stolen. We are completely devastated! We have several therapy dog events coming up on Monday and every week in June but now the therapy dogs will have none of their needed harnesses or equipment.
