Review for Canine Assisted Therapy, Inc., Oakland Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars   Featured Review

Canine Assisted Therapy has made such a difference in so many lives! Every other week, they Zoom into our living room at YourLife of Coconut Creek which is a memory care facility. The volunteers share their story and brighten the residents day and leaves them smiling. So often the residents remember and reminisce about the pets they used to have, several were dog trainers and it is wonderful to see the change in the persons face and the happiness it brings. The volunteers are phenomenal. We are just so lucky to have these kind people and their fur children make such a difference in so many people.
Since COVID 19, their Zoom visits are eagerly looked forward to even more than ever. Before this, the volunteers and fur children, did a dog parade here and the joy was obvious for all to see. Lori Bale is great each time setting up the visits and Elise Samet was super helpful getting us started with Canine Assisted Therapy.
I cannot name just one special volunteer each time we do the Zoom because they are all wonderful. I look forward to when I can personally thank each of these angels for making such a difference.
