Before we take on a new facility or school, we conduct a site visit. This is to fully understand their needs and determine if we are the right program for them. This month we met with several potential partners and are excited about two joining our Love Dog animal therapy family.
Petey goes on every site visit with me and helps decide if this is the right environment and/or population for our volunteer handlers and animals.
The process takes time and often we begin with one type of program and then delve into another. But this conscious effort to be partners with our facilities is what makes Love Dogs unique and so successful. We have been with some partners for six years now and the program evolves over time as people and situations change.
Thank you to our loyal and important partners and all the volunteers out in the field every day making this important human-animal connection.
