Kobe Dog Plushie
Rogers Behavioral Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization on a mission to advance treatment, education, advocacy, and research on behalf of people with mental health or addiction challenges, their families, and the communities we serve.
With the title of Experiential Therapy Assistant, Kobe, Rogers’ first four-legged employee, understands that helping people on their journeys to mental health recovery is part of his job description.
A lovable lab/golden retriever mix, Kobe joined our team in March 2023. He came to us from the Paws with a Cause (PAWS) custom raining facility in Wayland, Michigan.
Kobe is a “facility dog,” which means he is a working dog specifically trained to help more than one person at facilities like Rogers. Unlike assistance dogs assigned to one person, Kobe is being trained to work with a handler to serve multiple people who need social interaction, recovery motivation, comfort, and/or a feeling of safety.
