Loving Canines Needed
Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey
If you own a certified pet therapy dog, you and your dog can bring joy and comfort to senior citizens through Caregiver Canines, a wonderful new program in Ocean County offered through the non-profit agency Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ). Please consider volunteering your pet to help. Everyone will benefit.
You and your dog will be matched with a senior citizen to make friendly home visits at times that are convenient for you. These visits will bring great joy and a well-documented role in reducing stress, improving the health and self-esteem of seniors and most importantly helping the elderly cope with loss and loneliness.
