Review for PAWS Of CNY Inc., Syracuse, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

PAWS of CNY is amazing... I have seen families cry while their family member who has dementia enjoy a visit and talk to a dog while the rest of the time they are silent.... I have seen cancer patients in pain smile and forget their pain for a moment while a dog snuggles with them.... I have seen a therapy cat lead a caravan of wheelchairs into a common room so everyone can exclaim how special it is to see "a cat walking on leash like a dog" and the whole room burst into laughter, then the cat walk from person to person for attention. I've seen college kids cry into a dog's mane as they are homesick for their own dog, but after a good cry they play ball with the dog and then say "thanks for the hug, I needed that . I feel so much better... Time to hit the books!" PAWS of CNY is an incredible organization.... Volunteering is one hour a month.... Who can't find an hour to give back and have fun with our furry friends?
