Visiting Pets -- lifting spirits with loving companions
1 person is interested
Dogs, cats, gerbils, hamsters, ponies, pigs...
Trained volunteers and their pets visit our patients -- bringing joy, warmth and companionship to help brighten the last days of their lives. Pet visits can bring our patients a sense of peace and trust, and help to relieve stress. The emotional benefits of pet visits continue long after the visit is over.
Pets must have passed obedience training and be certified by a Pet Companionship Program, such as Therapy Dogs International, or a comparable program (many qualifying programs are listed on the American Kennel Club’s website).
Service areas: Brookfield, Cudahy, Oak Creek, Freedonia, Grafton, Cedarburg, Pewaukee, Sussex, Watertown, Glendale, Milwaukee, Kenosha, Racine, Lake Geneva, Pleasant Prairie, St. Francis and more.
