The Weather Channel Launches Nationwide Search for Weather Therapy Dog

The Weather Channel®, the world's leading weather authority, in partnership with American Humane Association (AHA), announced today the launch of a nationwide search to find a therapy dog that will assist with recovery in hard-hit communities affected by severe weather. The partnership brings together two iconic organizations known for their commitment to keeping the public safe and informed.

"The Weather Channel supports the mission of American Humane Association, which helps in the search and day-to-day care for our four-legged friends after the devastation of many severe weather events," said David Clark, president of The Weather Channel network. "We often feature news of AHA's important work on our television, web and mobile properties, and this partnership formalizes our relationship to better serve communities together."

The Weather Channel and AHA continue to educate and serve the public before, during and after severe weather strikes. To assist in the nationwide search for a therapy dog, the network is enlisting the help of its viewers and animal shelters across the country. In the weeks and months following a natural disaster, The Weather Channel therapy dog and AHA handler will visit schools, hospitals, shelters and other locations in hard-hit communities to bring comfort and service. Fans of The Weather Channel can share in the dog's journeys and affected communities can follow his or her trail on weather.com and www.americanhumane.org.

"Rain or shine, animals play a vital part in the health of every community, and in times of disaster therapy animals can be especially valuable in rebuilding lives and restoring communities," said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane Association, which pioneered animal-assisted therapy and has used it to help the aged, the infirm, military families, and children with cancer. "Like The Weather Channel, they are truly our "all-weather friends." We are very pleased to be part of this national effort to find and unleash the unique power of animal-assisted therapy to help bring comfort and healing to America's communities wherever and whenever they are in need."
