Stink Bug Project

Services: Patient Support, Sibling Support
Founded: 2010

The Stink Bug Project is a program of the Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to making a difference in the lives of children and families being cared for by the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children’s healthcare network and throughout the region. The Stink Bug Project partners with the Prison Trained K-9 Companion Program at Colorado Correctional Industries to provide, well-trained, loving companion dogs to families stricken with life threatening illnesses.

The Stink Bug Project supports families who have a child diagnosed with a life threatening illness. We provide well-trained, loving companion dogs from the Prison Trained K-9 Companion Program at Colorado Correctional Industries. Dogs lower stress for patients and caregivers and we think that finding the perfect best friend during this stressful time will make a huge difference. We also find ways to help siblings who tend to get lost in the shuffle during this difficult time.
If you have a child that is going through a life-threatening illness and would like a dog through the Stink Bug Project, please visit or contact Brianna Elwell.
