Therapy Dogs Working
May 15, 2020
Many non-profit organizations have hit pause and that includes KPETS, an animal therapy organization.
The Central PA collection of volunteers suspended all activities back in March.
They say that the future is uncertain as efforts to social distance continue.
“Now it’s thinking about what is ahead,” KPETS Volunteer Darlene Graham said. “What is ahead for us? How are we going to be able to continue with the mission of taking the therapy dogs around? We have other therapy animals as well too, so it’s just a whole new idea for us.”
Volunteers say they’ll likely need longer leashes and masks going forward.
The group does live Zoom calls and posts social media videos to help patients at area hospitals.
