Marcie Velen and her girls, Shayna and Molly, have been with Gabriel's Angels for 3 years. Marcie became interested in pet therapy after realizing Shayna needed a job. "She was just way too busy at home and not in a productive way! At her own job, Marcie was a social worker in the child welfare field and when she learned about Gabriel's Angels, at a pre-party for the Animal Fair vendors, she knew it was a prefect melding of her interests and experience. While Marcie had four dogs at the time, she knew only Shayna and Molly had those qualities that make a potential therapy dog: they are calm and polite and very very friendly with children and adults. So, she signed them up for obedience class and 5 months later she completed the therapy team registration process.

Marcie decided to make herself available to the facility with the greatest need at the time, and was assigned to the preschool at the Child/Family Center of La Frontera.
Marcie likes to ask if they can hear what the dog is thinking and its fun to see the kids express themselves through the dog. Sometimes they say 'she wants a cookie' because that's what the kids really want to do, give her a cookie.
