Lana gets a big hug.
  • “Your visit to my classroom with Lana and Amos was fantastic. ...I can’t wait until January when we can spend more time together. I anticipate a huge success with my students and when other teachers find out what is happening in my classroom they will be ‘beating down your door’ to get you to come to their classrooms too!”
  • Noel Gamel, Special Education Teacher, Palm Springs Unified School District

Our Story

K-9 Friendly Visitors provides beneficial services to the deaf, hard of hearing, disabled and special needs students. Our goal is to improve the quality of life and learning experience for all of our clientele while increasing their self esteem and improving cognitive skills. We are not just dogs visiting organizations. We work hard with our partners to create meaningful lesson plans and programs, so the dogs become the catalyst for the students’ growth.
