When a person is sick or recovering from an injury/surgery, it's so hard to be away from home, not to mention feeling sick, and in pain. While our family and friends can come and visit us, our pets cannot, and sometimes we miss our special furry comforters most of all. I know from experience how much it means when the Therapet come. It's moments of respite from the challenges of being hospitalized - that special love and comfort that a dog can provide. Out Therapets subsitute for the beloved pets of the patients, and inevitably smiles of joy and expressions of sweet relief are what we receive in return. Those are what makes being a Therapet Volunteer so gratifying.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Being hospitalized myself and having Therapets both visit me and work with me to accelerate my recovery while in rehabilitation.
