Through the generosity of donors, the Trouble on the Scene program distributes plush Trouble the Dog toys to first responders to have on hand to distribute to distressed children at the moment of impact. Each child receives his or her very own Trouble plush and companion book, “Where There’s Trouble, There’s Hope,” as a keepsake. Officers cite Trouble’s large size and general “huggability” as being among the qualities that make this American-made toy uniquely comforting to children in crisis.

Trouble the Dog
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.
