Therapy dog screening set at Rescue Village

A screening for potential therapy dogs will take place Saturday at the Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village, 15463 Chillicothe Road, Russell Township.

Dogs must be screened by the trainer prior to the Therapy Dogs International Inc. class, which begins April 11.

The six-session, Sunday class will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Cost of the TDI class is $125 and registration is required prior to class date. At the completion of the class, dogs who are at least 1 year old will be tested to receive therapy dog certification.

Geauga Humane Society’s goal in hosting the class is to recruit graduates as Rescue Village volunteer ambassadors. Ambassador dogs and their handlers represent Rescue Village at community events, work with TLC Kids Camp participants and visit classrooms.

For more information on TDI, visit To make an appointment for screening, call Barbara Collins at 440-285-4679.
