How Can HOPE AACR Help?

HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response is prepared to lend assistance to relief organizations by sending Certified Animal-Assisted Crisis Response Teams where you need them most.

Our teams are trained and certified to provide emotional comfort and support to people affected by crises and disasters. From single person crises to national disasters, HOPE AACR is ready to help. We have experienced teams consisting of canines and handlers that are trained and tested to be able to respond under stresses of crisis response work. HOPE AACR Teams are ready to work side by side with you. All HOPE AACR members are insured under a $1 million general liability policy.

Stress Management and Compassion Fatigue are important considerations when deciding how to take care of staff members. HOPE AACR Teams can help provide needed relief for your staff. Interacting with calm, well-mannered dogs is known to help decrease heart rate, lower blood pressure, and allows people to de-stress in a simple, yet effective way.
