  • “I went in to buy my pups some sarge bones by Merrick. These bones are awesome and so hard to find. They were sold out but promptly ordered more. They called me four days later to tell me the bones were in and they had put two aside for me for ten days! It’s rare to find people who will go so out of their way for the happiness of you and your pets. I’ll be a customer for life.” - Kate C.

Therapy Dog Evaluation with the Pets and People Foundation

Therapy Dog Evaluation with the Pets and People Foundation

Acton

Sunday, October 27, 2013 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
(Save to cal)

As a pet lover and owner, you know how much joy a pet can bring. Did you ever think about sharing that joy with others and exploring the possibility of your pet becoming a therapy pet? He may just be the perfect candidate! Find out more about the process, preparatory training, necessary skills and certification.

A non-profit organization founded in 1985, the Pets and People Foundation offers pet-assisted therapy to residents of nursing homes, assisted living homes, special needs facilities, halfway houses and some children's facilities as well as attendees at senior day care centers and patients of various hospitals in eastern Massachusetts. Their volunteers share their pets in visits of 45 minutes to an hour long at a time mutually agreed upon by the volunteer and the activities' director of the site visited.

Each volunteer is asked to be involved in a five-step program before they settle into any site as a regular visitor.

An orientation is required before testing. The test is free and pre-registration is required. For more information, call Christine Macdonald at 508-572-1419.
