Therapy Animal Volunteers

SJC was the first airport to allow therapy animals to walk around in the terminals, starting shortly after 9/11 to help calm passengers’ nerves before flying. A little over two decades later, the program has grown to include 25 active therapy dogs and two therapy cats sourced from the Alliance of Therapy Dogs and Love on a Leash. If your dog, cat, or rabbit is friendly, well-trained, and certified by one of these organizations, you and your furry companion could be greeting and delighting travelers from all over the world.

Alliance of Therapy Dogs is a long-established organization with the mission of forming a large network of caring individuals and their dogs to bring smiles, comfort and anxiety reduction to people in multiple settings. Our goal is to support the handlers and their therapy dogs as they join our organization so that they have wonderful experiences as they provide pet therapy in a wide variety of venues.

We welcome dogs of all sizes and breeds to join our teams and will do all we can to assist in the certification process and orientation to venues. 

To apply, please contact Kyra Hubis at puz@sbcglobal.net. For more information about the program visit: https://www.therapydogs.com/.
