Ruby & Kim began as a certified "pet therapy team" 6 years ago through Creature Comfort Pet Therapy (CCPT.org). While living in Morristown, NJ, about 90% of their volunteer work was done at Morristown Medical Center (MMC) through the Soothing Paws program and since moving to the Lehigh Valley in PA about a year ago, they've been active in the Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) at Cedar Crest and 17th Street Hospitals.
They haven't let the pandemic stop them! Ruby has provided "virtual pet therapy" as needed (via Zoom and FaceTime) and is looking forward to some COVID-safe visits soon. She's also been featured as a model in LVHN's social media campaign for proper mask-wearing and is featured in the "Calling All Kids" read to a pet program, now provided to inpatients via video at MMC.
Walks in the park every morning keep Ruby healthy and happy! Please join us as we track our steps for this great cause!
