Our chocolate lab Sam was one of the very first volunteers with CCPT when they just got started. Over the years we also certified our other 3 labs. The happiness of bringing comfort and a smile to hundreds and thousands of people has been so gratifying. Nancy and I like to say, “that while we may not be saving lives, sometimes a person just needs the comfort of an animal to put a smile on their face even for a short while.”
The countless hours visiting the kids in Morristown hospital’s pediatric unit has been some of the most rewarding moments we have ever experienced. We go every year on Christmas morning to bring some smiles to the children who are unfortunately there. The kids and their parents get a chuckle and a smile when a 100 lb. Lab gets in bed and falls asleep next to them. These visits are so incredibly rewarding, not only for the children, but for Sam, Nancy and myself as well.
Please help support CCPT, how can you go wrong in supporting animals, children, and people in need.
