Who We Are
Canines for Christ is an international Christian-based, animal-assisted therapy ministry that uses ordinary people and their beloved dogs to share God’s message of love, hope, kindness, and compassion to the community. We are a 501c3 non profit charity under IRS guidelines.
What We Do
Pioneered by Chaplain Larry Randolph, Canines for Christ has been in existence since July 2007. God has blessed many people through this ministry and changed lives. We are honored to give Him all the glory and humbled to be representing our Lord in communities all over the world. New dogs, volunteers and Chaplains are being added constantly. Currently, over 730 canines and human volunteers in 39 states and 3 foreign countries have been approved to serve God in this unique ministry.
With God’s blessings, we hope to expand in many more locations. Praise God!
We currently go to places such as cancer centers, grief centers, children’s hospitals, Hope Lodge for the American Cancer Center, nursing homes, veterans hospitals, hospice facilities, special needs facilities for the mental and physically disabled, home visits, prison’s, 911 centers, disaster response centers and many other places upon request.
Our mission is letting Christ’s love shine through us and our canines as His disciples when we visit people who need love, hope and compassion that only God’s message can provide. And we want them to know that God loves them. Millions of people have been touched by this saving message as we bring God’s light of love into the darkness.
Are you asking yourself…
What is my calling and can my dog break down barriers for me to talk with people?
Where is it that God wants to use me to build His Kingdom and can I be an ambassador for Christ?
How can I make a difference in the lives of people in need of love, hope, and compassion?
Am I able to share the love of Jesus with the sick, elderly, lonely, depressed, injured, suffering and dying in my community? If after prayer you feel led to become a volunteer we would be honored to have you join over 700 people like you reaching out with God’s love to people in their community.
