Friday marked the 1st Annual Therapy Dogs United Volunteer Recognition Dinner.
After passing her therapy dog exam in January, Tess became an official Therapy Dog of TDU.The organization is entirely run on volunteers (in both human and canine form!) that put A TON of time in throughout the course of the year.
Although still a relatively young organization – less than 5 years – TDU has over 300 teams and visits over 50 facilities throughout the year.
The dinner recognized all TDU volunteers, but the highlight of the evening was the announcement of the 2012 TDU Volunteer of the Year Award .
