Healing Species Puget Sound featured in Best Friends Network


The Healing Species Puget Sound was formed in 2006 and operates as a program within Project Canine, a Washington State registered nonprofit organization that is in the process of acquiring its 501c(3) status with the IRS.


The Healing Species is an 11-week violence intervention/character education outreach. Through the assistance of rescued dogs, we teach children a process from which to understand and overcome abuse, neglect, and grief while at the same time teaching life skills in self-esteem, conflict resolution, anger management, and respect for the feelings of others. The children learn to gain success through acts of compassion and responsibility instead of returning "violence for violence".

The Healing Species program was developed in South Carolina and has benefited thousands of students throughout the country.
