Sometimes we need to “paws” and think about the ways we can pay it forward...make a difference...bring a smile to someone’s face. Tucker and I joined the Creature Comfort Team a few years after I had a pet therapy visit while in the hospital waiting for my father’s surgery. It was such a calming experience in the middle of the stress of waiting and waiting. I knew then that I wanted to do this. But I never knew how incredibly impactful it would be...until....Tucker and I met a young girl in pediatrics who looked forward to seeing Tucker because we visited with her weekly on and off for a year....or when we met a man who had dementia, and the only time he smiled was when Tucker gently put his head under the man’s hand....or when we spent time with a family who had just lost their father....or the little girl who conquered her fear of reading out loud by reading to Tucker...or the young boy who held on to Tucker’s collar as he tried to stand up....The power of pet therapy and the positive difference it can make in the lives of others is incredible.
We miss our in-person pet therapy visits and can’t wait to get back to it! But in the meantime, while we can only do virtual visits, we need your help to support Creature Comfort Pet Therapy so that when the world opens back up and it’s safe to go out again, we can be there....touching lives and warming hearts....
Will you please help by donating to help make a difference for someone who will be waiting anxiously for that next visit?
I appreciate your support!
Kris & Tucker
