Welcome to our
website that briefly explains a structure/model for ministry that integrates a canine companion directly into ministry/pastoral
and spiritual care. The following pages will highlight the unfolding story of a dog-ministry program based on the CAM/PS
Model (Canine-Assisted Ministry/Pastoral and Spiritual care). In addition, this site will provide you with a list of
resources on this cutting-edge ministerial form written by its creator, Dr. Jerilyn E. Felton.
Enjoy your time here and we hope that you will return again and again to see how the Four-Footed Ministers
Pastoral-Care Program, built on the CAM/PS Model, continues to unfold.
Blessings from Jerilyn and Alya (a Four-Footed Minister who finally made it out of Divinity School
(10/10/10), but that is another story).
