Share Your Story

When Dogs Heal is not just about the healing power of dogs for people living with HIV or AIDS. Dogs can help those with cancer, depression, PTSD, fighting addiction, along with the many other types of challenges life can throw our way.  If you have a story that you’d like to share about a difficult period where you benefited from the love and companionship of your canine friend, we’d love to hear it! With each story so unique, we believe sharing our collective experiences provide two priceless returns: a sense of community and greater compassion towards those who have felt stigmatized or isolated by their situation.  Please use the submission form below to tell us your story. Each week, we’ll select a story to publish on our blog.
