Therapet has been a life changing experience for my dog and I. The act of sharing my dog with those that are ill or impaired in some way has given me a more positive perspective on people. Patients and those in need who show their love and gratitude for the simple kindness an animal gives them have reinforced my belief that all humans just want to be loved. Animals give that unconditionally. This group of people who love their dogs and animals and unselfishly share them with others is simple yet remarkable. The positive effects are not only shared by patients and those in need but also by the volunteers, staff and the animals themselves.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the positive rewards of helping others while sharing my dog. Also having a Greyhound dog that was adopted through rescue has exposed this breed to the public in such a positive manner that it has helped promote adoptions.
