Canine Comfort Pet Therapy

By Melanie Sadek

Abstract

The relationship between pets and people has immeasurable value on our emotional and physical health. Through Canine Comfort Pet Therapy, Valley Humane Society brings animals to places other pets can’t go, sharing the unconditional love that pets offer and creating opportunities for people to experience the love of a pet. Sharing their own beloved companions, VHS Canine Comfort Pet Therapy volunteers team up with their dogs to improve the lives of others through our community in two primary ways:

Paws to Heal provides therapeutic pet visitation to medical facilities, schools and retirement homes throughout the Tri-Valley.

Paws to Read encourages a love of animals and improves the reading skills of children in cooperation with local libraries and schools.

Valley Humane Society has worked to save and improve the lives of Tri-Valley companion animals since 1987. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our programs and services are made possible by the generosity of private donors — we receive no government funds, tax dollars, or money from national humane organizations.
