This past Saturday my dog Danny and I visited the nursing home in Succasunna to spread some smiles to the staff and the residents! It was great (and quite toasty in the place, as usual) and also as usual, Danny was fantastic. I hold him in my arms and lean toward all of the elderly residents in their wheelchairs and he soaks up the love and gives occasional kisses. It brings such joy to these people and I love working with him.
Also, today I gathered brochures and a contract from the president of CCPT. I mailed it to a woman who lives in a senior apartment complex in a town who I have spoken on the phone with about introducing pet therapy to their community room at their complex; I can’t wait to hear their response! Wish me luck! (Tails crossed!)
I really really recommend pet therapy to everybody. Whether you’re a nursing home, hospital, library, school, or apartment complex, I think you should look into the immense benefits of having animals to be around. And if you have a compassionate animal, don’t hesitate to get started! I’m pretty sure you can sign up as a volunteer even if you don’t own a therapy pet. Creature Comfort Pet Therapy is amazing!
