Not much of a bowler? SPARE me! I am bowling to raise big money to provide Pet Therapy to at-risk kids! This is a fundraiser for Gabriel’s Angels, a local nonprofit providing pet therapy to at-risk children by nurturing their emotional development and enhancing the quality of their lives.
I am on the board of this amazing organization, whose mission it is to instill in children an overall emotional sense of well-being, safety and happiness, and to help them develop core behaviors that will prevent them from continuing the cycle of violence as adults. My pets have meant so much to me personally, that it is easy to understand how the love of a dog can make a significant improvement in an at risk youths life.
We currently provide pet therapy services to 122 agencies and serve over 14,800 children each year. Our services are provided free of charge to the agency and its children. Gabriel’s Angels Pet Therapy services are provided by volunteer Therapy Teams, usually consisting of a dog and its owner. Teams visit partner agencies to interact with the children and staff.
Donations of all sizes make a difference! Please help us ensure that at-risk children in Arizona get a chance at a brighter future.
