The Kennek Foundation works much of its magic with the help of an angel in disguise... Trouble the Dog. Trouble is an ultra-soft keepsake toy that is 100% made in the USA. He comforts children experiencing "trouble" in their lives -- big or small. Trouble has been applauded by CNN and MSNBC as a "socially conscious toy"; a "comfort toy" and as a "therapy dog" by the Boston Herald. The children's book, "Here's Trouble" teaches kids about hope and resilience while demonstrating the power of unconditional love.
