SAN’s Volunteer Airport Ambassador (VAA) program expanded in 2014 to include a dedicated team of four-legged creatures who specialize in putting smiles on weary passengers’ faces. The VAA teamed up with the Traveler’s Aid Society of San Diego and Therapy Dogs, Inc. to launch Ready, Pet, Go, a therapy dog program. Each Ready, Pet, Go team consists of a therapy dog and an Airport Ambassador, who fanned out in the terminals to provide comfort, stress relief and helpful information. The program launched just before the holidays and was a huge hit with the traveling public.
