Pet Companionship

Pets. We may not always understand them, but we always love them - mostly for their silliness, loyalty, and overall comforting presence. We love them because they bring happiness into our lives and help us get through each day.

The presence of a friendly animal like a dog or cat, if only for a few minutes, can lift some of the strain on patients and families who are going through a difficult time. Those few minutes can sometimes go a long way. These support animals can:

  • Reduced stress
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Anxiety relief
  • Offer comfort, companionship, and confidence

We are currently looking for pet companionship or therapy teams (i.e. Pet Partners, Therapy Dogs International) to join our program. All pets must be up-to-date with all of their shots and vaccinations.

Contact us today at 330-899-9100 and ask to speak to a Volunteer Manager for more information.
