Sometimes the small moments reveal new directions. A kind stranger paid a compliment to my dog Sadie during a walk in the park a few years ago. She was impressed with Sadie’s calm and friendly demeanor and suggested that she would make a great therapy dog. I had been looking for volunteering opportunities and the pet therapy idea sounded perfect...volunteer and be welcomed with my dog. After a bit more training and some research, we found Creature Comfort Pet Therapy. Since 2018, Sadie and I have had the honor and pleasure to be volunteers with CCPT. This volunteer work has brought us so much happiness and we’ve met so many wonderful people that love Sadie as much as I do. It is so rewarding and soul-satisfying to see faces light up and moods change just to spend a bit of time with a dog that seems to understand just what people need.
And now we need your help. We are in the midst of our main fundraising event, Creature Comfort’s Furry Scurry Walk-a-Thon, a month-long cumulative marathon during October. Our theme this is year is Connecting Hearts and Soles – and that’s what we aim to do during this fundraising event. The simple act of connecting is so important for us all right now. Sadie and I will be walking and capturing our adventures and sharing them on social media as we raise money for this very special organization so that we can continue the special volunteer work we do.
You can help a few different ways:
- Donate to my page, please!
- Join my team and help us raise money and walk wherever you are – pets are always welcome but not required!
- Start your own team and walk along wherever you with your own circle of family, friends and pets. You have the month of October to walk along with us and capture your own adventures.
Completing the marathon is optional and you can also get in the running for weekly raffle prizes.
Every donation counts, so thank you from the bottom of our Hearts and Soles.
