MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES: The pet owner will work to do the following while visiting residents at Lyngblomsten:

-Provide opportunities for the residents to pet and/or hold animal(s)

-Converse with the residents during the visit

-Animals must be well behaved around people and wheelchairs

TIME COMMITMENT: Flexible. The hope is that pet visits would occur several times a month, but day and time are quite flexible!
