Pet Visitors

A young boy with a small white dogPet visits for children who are uplifted by the unconditional love of a calm and affectionate pet. The simple act of petting these furry friends can generate feelings of relaxation. Those who have experienced pet visits report having less stress and anxiety.

For children who have difficulty relating to others, time with a pet can build self-esteem and confidence. The opportunity to interact with an accepting, non-verbal partner – who eagerly provides cuddles and snuggles – may relieve feelings of isolation or loneliness. Our pet visitors are sure to bring smiles everywhere they go!
