The mission of Crisis Response Canines is to provide strength, comfort, and emotional support to individuals, families, communities, and first responders experiencing intense emotions in the aftermath of critical incidents. Our highly trained K9 teams are experienced in psychological first aid and certified to work effectively in crisis environments supporting any affected by mass shootings, large-scale accidents, violence, abuse, tragic death, suicides, terrorism, natural disasters (fire, flood, hurricane, etc.), and more. Our goal is to establish a nationwide network of canine crisis response teams who can be deployed immediately where they are needed most.
Our volunteer members and their canine partners have achieved national therapy dog certification, AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Certification and Crisis Response Working Dog certifications.
CRC has two groupings of teams:
CRC Comfort: Our CRC Comfort Teams serve as the foundation for our deployments to hospitals, schools, businesses, speaking events and other similar opportunities.
