Tri-State Canine Crisis Response Team

Beyond the accomplishment of becoming a registered therapy dog despite his difficult battles with Epilepsy and Atypical Addison’s Disease … Porter is THE FIRST English Pointer to be a member of the Tri-State Canine Crisis Response Team! This 501C3 group Provides crisis response and emotional support with trained teams of dogs and their handlers, and is sponsored by Subaru of America, Inc..

Porter is a member of the group’s Caring K-9 team, providing Animal-Assisted Therapy at a local level designed to promote improvement in human physical, social, emotional and cognitive functioning.

Porter also volunteers on the Tri-State’s Crisis Response team for Crisis call-outs on the local level.

Why the change from Porter’s signature blue to black? When Porter is volunteering with this organization, all dogs are required to wear black as a part of the organization’s uniform.

Porter thinks he’s kind of a big dill

I’m so beyond proud of this boy!
