Through the life-changing power of pet therapy, Gabriel’s Angels enhances the social and emotional development of vulnerable children. Our work is driven by a passionate belief that the unconditional love of a pet can head a child. Pet therapy visits to vulnerable children places like Title I schools, homeless shelters, group homes and behavioral health facilities have a positive impact on helping children heal. Therapy teams, consisting of an owner and their pet, offer unconditional love and teach empathy, respect, confidence and other core behaviors that children might not learn through traditional channels. Our services are free as a direct result of gifts from our donors and volunteers.

Pawsitive Friendships

Pawsitive Friendships was founded in 2014 by Tosha Tharp-Gaitanis, the mother of a son with autism. She discovered that she increased his progress by incorporating her French bulldog, Zoe, into her son’s therapy. This model became the inspiration for our organization. Our mission is to assist individuals with special needs who are not adequately progressing toward their goals by providing animal-assisted therapy. Our programs work with local special education schools, pediatric clinics and adult day programs. Contact us to learn how your dog, cat, pig, mini horse, alpaca, bird, reptile and more can make a pawsitive impact.
