(Chief Executive Woo)

As a Certified Therapy Dog, he has visited hospitals, rehab centers, long term care facilities and schools across the U.S. since 2011. As a pioneer among virtual therapy dogs, he has engaged with tens of thousands of Facebook followers on six continents.

He has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal and other national media. He has appeared on the Animal Planet network, and has raised funds for at-risk dogs and canine cancer research.

Neversink’s Never Bean Better—or simply “Bean”, as this golden retriever is better known—is truly a golden boy among therapy dogs. But fame has not gone to his very pet-able head. For people who are ill, depressed, at risk, disadvantaged or just having a bad day, Bean still delivers his same, welcome message: forget your worries for a while, smile, and live in the moment.

Bean is about sharing the love, and Bean the Dog plush toys help spread that joy. For every one purchased, another is given by Bean and his buddies to a child who is ill or disadvantaged.
