  1. Hello
    I used to be a member of BARCC years ago, I recently was asked by someone from Bethesda in Watertown if there were dog therapy groups in the area.
    Is this group still active? And if so who would be a contact person that I could forward to her?

    • Hi Jody! We remember you and your daughter as BARCC members! We did have one team that visited a hospital in Watertown, but I’m not sure if that team is available to visit Bethesda. We would have to bring this up at our next meeting. Yes, we have about 15 dogs currently registered and working!
