MARQUETTE– Hope Animal Assisted Crisis Response is a nationwide non-profit which provides comfort and encouragement through dogs.

The dogs go through extensive training. Crisis scenes, by their nature, are not predictable. Teams are likely to encounter people expressing intense emotions, stress, trauma and grief. In the U.P., the group has been around since 2001.

“Our first major deployment was the World Trade Center bombing,” said Nicholas Meier, Regional Director. “So, we have about 330 K9 teams throughout the United States and we have seven K9 teams in the U.P.”

Superior Health Foundation awarded more than $3,000 to the group. This will be used for training and development of the program in the U.P.
