With the recent vaccination rollout and schools returning to in-person learning, the Charlotte Helen Bacon Foundation has made the decision to resume funding for its Charlotte’s Litter therapy dog grants.

 The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on students will be long-lasting, and the need for school therapy dog programs is on the rise. Our grants are here to assist schools make a therapy dog vision a reality.

The deadline for new proposals is May 31, 2021.

Please visit our Charlotte’s Litter page for more information.

    As a health science teacher in a public high school in Tennessee, I have witnessed the great need for a therapy dog post COVID. We are still unsure of the magnitude of the pandemic long-term, but the short-term effects are obvious. According to studies, anxiety and depression have doubled compared to pre-pandemic times. I am very excited to find this organization and hope to incorporate animal assisted therapy (AAT) as I teach health science (behavior health and physical therapy) and beyond. After extensive research of dog breeds, I purchased a puppy last week- a bernadoodle. I look forward to this amazing journey as we begin training next week. I plan to use your foundation as an example of the importance of therapy dogs in schools and start a dog therapy program at Kingsport City Schools- my school district.

      Wonderful! We wish you luck on your therapy dog journey. We have resources on our website that can help you get started. Once your dog is more established, we encourage you to apply for one of our grants!
