In addition to bringing a smile and some fun to a senior’s day, interacting with a friendly pet can help many physical and mental issues, and is an important part of our programing for both independent seniors and those with cognitive and physical limitations. Help us bring this valuable tool to more seniors by having your therapy animal come visit!

  • Sarasota - 1820 Brother Geenen Way, Sarasota FL 34236
  • Venice - 2350 Scenic Drive, Venice FL 34293

  • Scheduling is flexible, Mon-Fri. We’ll arrange a mutually agreeable day and time. You and your animal can volunteer regularly or just one time. A monthly visit is ideal.
