Working as a Therapet volunteer has been extremely rewarding! It combines my love for animals with my desire to help people. I love seeing the smiles on patients' faces when they interact with these animals. One special needs child lit up in a huge smile when he hugged a big therapy dog---and his teachers said he NEVER smiled! Patients recovering from strokes love brushing and talking to the animals. Therapet animals bring joy, hope and healing.
