About Us

SCCV is a local, not-for-profit organization in the Albuquerque area. We have more than 70 + members and multiple dogs. We’ve been offering pet therapy to this community for more than 30 years. Our organization partners with over 35 facilities, allowing our members to visit a wide variety of locations and provide pet therapy to hundreds of individuals in need of a furry friend.

The types of facilities we work with include…

  • hospitals

  • hospices and nursing homes

  • assisted living and memory care

  • rehabilitation centers

  • public libraries

  • children’s clinics

  • schools and colleges

  • emergency dispatch centers


We also work with numerous organizations to coordinate special community event opportunities.

Because we are a not-for-profit organization of volunteers, we are supported only by our members’ dues and we spend our money carefully. We have no office, just a post office box and this web site. A volunteer officer or committee member will answer online inquiries through our contact form, Click Here.

As people who are dedicated to our dogs as well as to the people whom we serve, the Southwest Canine Corps of Volunteers, Inc. (SCCV) and their canine partners offer comfort, compassion and educational opportunities. We strive to facilitate friendship and mutual support among our members as we serve the community.
