Local News

A local dog charity celebrates its 10 year anniversary.  ‘Therapy Dogs United’ honored their 10 years in service by getting some of their four-legged friends together for a celebration at their office in Erie. 

Therapy Dogs United is a program that provides comfort and therapy to people around the Erie and Crawford County region using dogs.  They go around to nursing homes, schools, and they even give comfort in the courtroom.  

Volunteer Bridget Buzard says, “…it is a well-known fact that a dog lowers the blood pressure, takes away anxiety, it has been known to cause wonderful things to happen in therapy. Children will open up during difficult situations. “

Therapy Dogs United will be celebrating their anniversary throughout the week with various activities.
