The interaction with a sweet, loving cat or dog can be the best therapy. Here at Lake Humane Society, we partner with local organizations in order to bring unconditional love from our animals to support people in need. With the help of volunteers, our animals make weekly visits to different hospitals and facilities. The visits typically range from 1-3 hours depending on how many patients are interested in getting some TLC from our animals. The therapy sessions not only benefit the patient, but they also benefit the animals. It is very important that our animals get some time out of the shelter and interact with groups of people. The animals really enjoy the time they spend with the patients.
Witnessing the joy these animals bring to the patient’s day is such a rewarding experience. If you are interested in becoming a Pet Therapy Volunteer, please fill out a Volunteer Application. If you have any questions, please speak with our Volunteer Coordinator.
