About Us

 HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response is a national, non-profit 501(c)3 membership organization. Since 1999, and especially in response to the 9/11 attacks, the HOPE AACR network of volunteers has provided comfort and encouragement through animal-assisted support to individuals affected by crises and disasters. Since its inception, HOPE AACR has been the premier source of training teams in animal-assisted crisis response (AACR). Different from Animal-Assisted Activities/ Animal-Assisted Therapies (AAA/ AAT) or Therapy Dogs, HOPE AACR teams, or Crisis Comfort Dogs, are specifically trained to deploy during times of crises or disasters.  

Our Mission is to provide comfort and encouragement through animal-assisted support to individuals affected by crises and disasters.

HOPE AACR has been serving people affected by disasters and traumatic events, free of charge, since 1999. We are proud of the great work our teams do!
