Abstract

Our Therapy Dog Program proves that positive human-animal interactions improve the physical, emotional and psychological lives of those we help. Our small group of volunteers share their time and the unconditional love of their dog with others. 

 

Animal-assisted activities provide social interactions for those recuperating in the hospital, the elderly in retirement homes or even students trying to cope with the stress of exams on college campuses.
