Past Projects:
With a strong foundation in pet therapy work, Kait and her husband John walked across the United States with their Pawsibilities Unleashed certified therapy dogs, Max, Grace, and eventually Jenny, in 2012. They visited 45 facilities in 12 states, spreading the word about pet therapy and the incredible potential of rescued dogs along the way. They were joined by support driver Jon Slater and his therapy dog and trusty co-pilot Old Brown Dog in Iowa. Video, photos, and stories from their Dog Walk Across America can be found at
