Pet Visits

Children can be uplifted by the unconditional love of a calm and affectionate pet. The simple act of petting these furry friends can generate feelings of relaxation.

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 bring smiles everywhere they go!
