A nonprofit organization

100% complete

$1,000 Goal

We bring elite therapy dogs to provide comfort in a crisis, a hospital, an airport, a nursing home - anywhere people could use love from a four-legged friend.


"The families at our school experience unusually high rates of poverty, trauma, and transiency. Spending time with this group of therapy dogs and their handlers has been one of the things that has helped make our school a safe and positive place for our kids to grow and learn", Julia, Teacher

"The dogs had a great impact on the close circle of friends that were grieving the loss of their friend. There were students that I hadn't even seen talk since the news that opened up and would talk with their 4-legged friend", Jordan, school counselor

"Thank you for everything you guys do to help people like me work through challenging parts of life. And thank you to all of the families who have spent the time and effort to train their furry friends to help others", Sarah, student.


Our mission is to train handler-dog teams to offer relief, caring, and assistance to those in need.

Background Statement

Our organization formed during the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs. The fire destroyed hundreds of homes and more than 32,000 people evacuated. Two therapy dogs and their handlers visited displaced residents in hotels and evacuation centers. They also spent time with first responders. The dogs provided comfort and distraction to those dealing with the tragedy. In fact, the reception was overwhelmingly positive! Current Executive Director Nancy Trepagnier, one of the original volunteers, saw the need for well-trained therapy and crisis handler/dog teams, the GO TEAM was started, and the rest is history!
