Riley, a certified therapy dog, is a 2 year old white chocolate Havanese. Riley works with children with cancer at the Methodist Childrens Cancer and Blood Center. He brings smiles and joy to many children and families.
Riley also attends Yellow Ribbon events for our deploying and mobilizing troops. Riley is also R.E.A.D.(Reading Education Assistance Dog) certified. He participates in the Paws 4 Reading Program at the Boerne Library. The children read in 20 minute sessions while relaxing on floor reading, stroking his soft white fur. The children leave with self confidence and motivation to practice reading for their next visit with Riley.
The Paws 4 Hearts group offers many oppurtunities to share and exchange stories between working therapy teams - meeting new friends and making a difference. Volunteering as a therapy team is very rewarding. Bringing smiles and joy to all!
