Crisis Response Canines


Community & Nonprofit Organizations


Crisis Response Canines (CRC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of certified K9 teams throughout the United States who have dedicated thousands of hours comforting those impacted by personal or community crisis events.  CRC also offers local volunteer services that are provided by the handlers and their canine partners, offering a level of comfort and calmness that only a canine can. CRC has two team levels: CRC Comfort and CRC Operational Deployment. Our CRC Comfort Teams serve as the foundation for our visits to hospitals, schools, businesses, speaking events, and other similar opportunities. The CRC Operational Deployment teams have the capability to respond to National Crisis Events. Our highly trained K9 teams are trained and certified to work effectively in crisis environments supporting anyone affected by mass shootings, large-scale accidents, violence, abuse, tragic death, suicides, terrorism, natural disasters (fi e, flood, hurricane, etc.), and more.
