Bringing SmilesOur pet therapy volunteers visit 9 area nursing homes on a monthly basis. This program allows the elderly to spend time with a loving animal while also providing more socialization for the pet.
The residents anticipate the monthly visits and the smiling faces that welcome the volunteers make the trip worthwhile. Word has spread, so whenever possible, we go to the facilities not regularly scheduled that have requested a visit to try to meet the community demand.
Both animals and humans greatly benefit from these visits. We have cats as well as dogs which participate. We are always looking for qualified participants both two and four legged.
