Mission

Roxy(tm) Therapy Dogs is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit. Our programs provide an irreplaceable, dependable support system for children in Central Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Our trained and certified therapy dogs deliver self-esteem, relief from anxiety and fear, and a sense of well-being. To a child who feels safe and relaxed, learning is accessible, and both physical and emotional healing are accelerated.

Roxy(tm) has five programs that take place in public schools, healthcare facilities, and the courthouse.

We are 100% dependent on donations to help us reach children who need the comfort and support of a Roxy therapy dog.

What We Do

ROXY'S 5 PROGRAMS

Elementary School Reading Inspiration:
This is the Roxy flagship program where over 3,000 Central Bucks School District elementary students per week benefit from Roxy therapy team visits to help them become stronger readers.

Student Specialized Support:
In classes where reading is not the focus, our certified pet therapy teams provide comfort and support for children with special educational and developmental needs. These classes include Autistic Support, Multiple Disability Support, and Life Skills.

Secondary School Stress Relief:
Students suffering from the loss of a parent or struggling with stress and anxiety benefit from the much-needed support and compassion provided by Roxy therapy team dogs.

Courthouse Companionship:
Imagine the fear of a child in the judicial system disappearing thanks to a loving visit from a Roxy therapy dog.

Pediatric Comfort:
Picture the joy a Roxy therapy dog brings to children in hospital and healthcare settings to help relieve stress, break up their day, and speed the healing process.
