Barbara Tanner & Farrah

Barbara Tanner & Farrah It seems I spent most of my time working and never having enough time for anything else until I retired a few years ago years ago.

I started volunteering at a no kill rescue  and rehabilitation shelter in Landrum and currently serve on the board.  It was there that I realized I wanted to make a difference in peoples lives as well as the dogs lives.  I contacted Paws 2 Care; went through the testing and later became a tester for Therapy Dogs Inc. I am so thankful for every day that we are able to bring a bit of happiness to those in need!


Farrah, my wonderful German Shepherd was 8 weeks old when she was put into my arms. She is one of 3 German Shepherds and one rescue mixed Chow in our house. She has gone through puppy, intermediate and advanced training; passed the CGC test and is a registered AKC therapy dog.  Farrah has a very calming personality and wins the hearts of so many people when we go on visits. She is an awesome companion!
