At, 1 FUR 1 Foundation we planned for all animal assisted therapy and activity programs to be back working at 100% by June of 2021. But we now know, that won’t be the case as different parts of the country try to navigate new surge of COVID cases. Our animal assisted activity programs in the Midwest won’t return until fall but programs located in the Southern part of the U.S.A. (CA, FL, TN, SC and NC) have started to visit with seniors living in long term facilities and medical staff in select hospitals. Our animal assisted therapy programs are essential and remain operational at reduce capacity so children with Autism and first responders/medical staff continue to receive free sessions. 1 FUR 1 continues to provide free online animal related engagements to anyone in need. If you or someone you know is struggling and needs a virtual visits from a furry friend, please let us know.
Donations from the public are the only source of revenue for us and directly impact our ability to do what we do best. For only $27/mo (the average cost of one session) will help us continue to deliver help and support to our life changing programs. Please raise a paw to join our mission and make a huge impact in the lives of animals and the people who need them on their journey to wellness.(Click here for latest annual report)



1 FUR 1 animal assisted activity program (AAA) in the Florida panhandle was allowed to visit with 45 military veterans and disabled seniors in person. Brodie, one of the certified mini horses was excited to bring joy to two long term care facility residents who have been on lock down since last year. Our newest partner, Timberknolls Spirit Cove servicing Tennessee, South and North Carolina had a huge impact with the loving Newfie therapy dogs who helped 750 medical staff and first responders deal with the trauma they have and continue to experience at work during this pandemic. Unfortunately, out third program with therapy dogs who visit disabled students in Illinois and St. Louis metro are still patiently waiting for schools to get back in session.
In San Diego County, California, 1 FUR 1's animal assisted therapy program (AAT) performed 3 AAT (in-person) sessions and 1 virtual session which impacted the lives of 21 children with autism learn, grow and experience emotional connections with various ranch animals. On the other side of the country, in Michigan the new Oakland County's prosecutor, Karen McDonald, made good on a campaign promise to partner with CAP & 1 FUR 1 to help youngsters and at-risk adults testify against sexual assault and other abuse.“I want children (and vulnerable adults) who are victims of crime and have to testify to feel safe and the least traumatized as they can possibly be. Dogs can reduce that trauma in them.” (read more). Just last month, these specially trained canine advocates supported 63 victims go through the judicial process.


There is a lot to celebrate during the month of April! Ripley, 1 FUR 1 founding member will be turning 14 yrs old and Brodie, from Kindred Spirits Therapy Minis, just turned 6. But that's not all, Oscar and Smokey from Canine Advocacy Program in Michigan and Jet, Dylan, Robbie and Larree from Furry Friends Recovery in IL.
