HOPE AACR has been working in emergency response since 2001 – that’s over a decade of experience!

Some therapy dog teams will show up on your site and become a burden.  Our AACR teams understand the environment you are working in after an event, and are trained to understand how to be a resource to you.  We will only go to a site when called in.  When you have called in HOPE teams, you will have a single point of contact to be able to manage all our onsite resources.

HOPE teams are committed to our local and state emergency response planning and response.  We are the only AACR group that is a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, and are members of the following state VOADs:
