About Lynden’s Summer 2022 Dog Days
This summer, thanks to the generosity of the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Joseph R. Pabst Fund, we are offering special programming during our monthly dog days. This gift came with a prompt: How can we acknowledge the role that dogs played in helping so many of us survive the pandemic?

Have you ever wanted to learn how you and your dog can become a pet therapy team? At our August Dog Day, we will receive a visit from Pets Helping People (PHP). You will be able to meet some of their certified pet therapy teams and to visit with and pet their dogs. PHP will have information about their training program and will be able to answer your questions.

About Pets Helping People
Pets Helping People (PHP) is a local nonprofit founded in 1998 on the premise that a dog's unconditional love, when paired with a compassionate human, is a remarkable source of support and comfort. PHP's mission is to improve the lives of the vulnerable and others through pet therapy visits. Services include: training and accreditation, collaborations, education and awareness. The pet therapy teams volunteer their time and provide independent visits and participate in group events throughout southeastern WI. Some of the places the teams visit are residential communities, adult-day programs, hospitals, hospice units, veteran services, universities and reading programs for children to name a few.
