Are you interested in becoming a registered Pet Therapy Team with your dog? As a member of our pet therapy volunteer group, Misty's Pals, you will have the opportunity to participate in this meaningful and rewarding volunteer activity.
Our Misty's Pals volunteers, along with their pets, deliver education programs to schools and youth groups, visit hundreds of seniors each month at senior centers, nursing homes and the hospital, and provide interactive programs for children with special needs. We also spend many hours helping children to improve their reading skills with our Paws to Read program.
Partcipating dogs are required to be registered with one of the naiional Therapy Dog organizations. We offer training classes to help you prepare your dog for evaluation by one of the national independent organizations.
To learn more about the training required and how to become a registered team, please call Jessie Clifford, Director of Humane Education at (772) 600-3221 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
