Who We Are

Canines for Christ is a 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.

What We Do

Pioneered by Chaplain Larry Randolph, Canines for Christ has been in existence since July 2007. The number of ways God has blessed all kinds of people through this ministry is humbling. New dogs and volunteers are being added constantly. Currently, hundreds of canines and human volunteers 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 homes, nursing homes, hospitals, hospice facilities, special needs facilities for the mental and physically disabled, home visits, prison ministries, 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.

Are you asking yourself...

  • What is my calling?
  • Where is it that God wants to use me to build His Kingdom?
  • 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, and dying?
