"Boltzmann had a favorite client we would see weekly. Most of the time she was non-verbal and catatonic. But when Boltz visited, she would talk to him, pet him and interact with him as if to say, “not to worry, it will be alright”.  At our last visit, she held him especially tight, spoke to him in Yiddish to be calming, and even kissed his head. Then she slipped away two days later, peacefully."

Tri-State K-9 Response Team, an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides crisis response and emotional support.  We do this with trained/certified teams of dogs and their handlers.  Why do we do it? We do it because it makes a difference. Every visit touches lives and helps to heal each person we connect with. Life is so precious and exciting, but it is also filled with challenges and tragedy. More and more people find themselves isolated without the support of family or friends. Our canine ambassadors fill this gap and provide unconditional support and comfort. Solace for victims of a natural or man-made disaster might only be found in the moments they spend with these amazing canines.

 Help make a difference in someone else’s life by donating or registering to run/walk/attend this amazing event. Your support allows us to continue this work and reach out to more and more people in need.  Thank you for your consideration.

This past September, Riverton resident Andrew Einstein, a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps., walked 100 miles from the Liberty Bell to the Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan. He took the “Long Walk” with two fellow Marines and their service dogs, including Einstein’s K-9 Gunner, to honor their fallen brothers, as well as bring awareness to PTSD. Einstein, who is a Westampton Township police officer, suffered a traumatic brain injury from a grenade blast while serving in Afghanistan and received a Purple Heart. Since being home, he has lived with PTSD. The walk may have raised over $11,000 but for Einstein, it was more about showing how those who suffer from PTSD can still be active members of society. He says he is living proof of that, and credits his wife Jill and his service dog for helping him cope with the effects of PTSD.
