Review for Therapet, Tyler, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved in Therapet for a little over two years. I find the experience to be a very rewarding one. Just the other day, a lady came up to me and said she recognized me from somewhere and asked if I had a greyhound. After answering her in the affirmative, she said that I had visited her husband in the hospital and told me how much it meant to him. Sadly, he died just a few months ago. It is so surprizing to me how much our visits mean to these people. It is always so rewarding to have someone remember what we have done. I find that one of the things that I enjoy doing most, is visiting the ICU's, and see the staff come sit on the floor and just love on our dogs. I believe that sometime the staff needs the love from our animals as much as the patients. I consider it an honor to work for such a wonderful organization.
