Did you know that Therapy Dogs International has a Disaster Stress Relief Unit?
The Unit deploys dogs to areas in need after receiving a request from Federal and State agencies.
So when Houston residents experienced stress after Hurricane Harvey, they were in need of a special visit.
Because families were in shelters, the dogs visiting survivors gave love and support. This helped the stress level drop.
Remember you can only touch a service dog after the handler has given permission.
