Abstract

Wags for Hope (WFH) is a non-profit organization that provides volunteers with their pets to bring joy to the lives of others. We visit Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, Hospitals and with Hospice. In addition, we supply local libraries and schools with certified R.E.A.D.® teams, who are using their animals as a conduit to help improve the literacy skills of the children in our community
