Zora and Chip
Canine Assisted Therapy Dog

Zora started at OVA in January 2024. She is a golden retriever and cocker spaniel mix.

Zora came to live with our advocate counselor, Kaci, in 2019. They have a common goal to work together to provide therapy to students, staff and faculty. Zora passed her Canine Good Citizen test in 2020 and has been working alongside Kaci ever since. 

She loves to bring play and laughter into sessions as well as lots of cuddles and pets. She loves showing off her tricks, especially high fives. Her favorite toy is her Chip stuffed animal.

Zora works exclusively with Kaci Alden-Woodcock, LCSW and is usually in the office on Tuesdays and Fridays.
