PET THERAPY PROGRAM
Do you have a calm, friendly, healthy dog or cat? Would you like to share your pet’s love with others? Therapy pets brighten lives by visiting hospitals, assisted living homes, nursing homes, and other facilities. As described in the October 24 Independent Record, they work as Reading Education Assistance Dogs in schools and libraries. Intermountain Therapy Animals (founder of the R.E.A.D. program) offers training, screening, liability insurance, and support for volunteers and their pets.
