Calling all gentle, people-friendly pets who are interested in volunteering time to work with children and adults with varying needs.  PAWS for People provides therapeutic visits to individuals who will benefit from interaction with a well-trained loving pet.  Therapy teams consist of one volunteer and one pet who have both completed rigorous training and testing.  Visitation sites range from nursing homes and hospitals to schools and libraries, with a wide variety of programs including eldercare, psychiatric support, developmental disabilities, literacy skills development and many more. Both training and orientation sessions are required.
