The Weather Channel is teaming up with the American Humane Association for a nationwide search for a "weather therapy dog." The pooch will help recovery efforts for communities that have been affected by natural disasters and severe weather.

The dog, along with an AHA handler, will visit schools and shelters and other locations to help out. Viewers will be able to follow the dog's journey on

The search asks viewers and animal shelters to nominate dogs that would fit the bill. He or she must be a rescue dog, and at least one year old. The search begins Dec. 30.
