GMR Brings Therapy Dogs to College Playoff National Championship

1.6.2022

GMR therapy dogs have deployed all over the country during natural disasters and communities hit hard by COVID-19.
Puppies at the Playoff Championship presented by Global Medical Response kicks off the College Football Playoff (CFP) National Championship weekend Friday evening with adorable puppies and the Global Medical Response (GMR) therapy dogs. Puppies available for adoption from Love of Labs Indiana will play for all the kibble and cuddles and the media is invited to attend.

When first responders need support after a difficult call or after a long day of helping patients, GMR’s therapy dogs are there to support them. GMR frontline caregivers and support teams across the country provide care at a moment’s notice. Particularly during the last two years, EMTs, paramedics, nurses, pilots and firefighters have gone above and beyond, responding to areas hard-hit by COVID-19, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires. The program has certified therapy dogs who provide effective pet-provided therapy services in their respective communities and across the country.
