Our mission is to provide trained and sponsored on-staff facility/therapy dogs to organizations serving communities in need.  

An on-staff dog allows for deeper encounters between staff and residents, patients, and the public. These therapeutic interactions create lasting ripple effects through a facility and then community by promoting outreach opportunities in many ways including brand management and marketing.

We assist organizations with their goals of attaining a turn key on-staff therapy dog experience within hospitals, schools, senior living centers and special needs communities, anywhere the full circle of healing is needed.

​Healing Pause is committed to the dream of having our dogs be agents of love and therapeutic engagement to those in need, because there is healing in the pause.
