Volunteer teams of humans and their canines from Suncoast Humane Society visit health care facilities and schools providing the human-animal bond for adults and children who need it most. They visit local libraries providing reading fun for children. The pet therapy teams are evaluated by the Humane Society and the national program, Pet Partners, to ensure the high degree of appropriateness expected.
The Suncoast Humane Society was formed in 1971 and is a not-for-profit institution which accepts all animals brought to it regardless of age or condition. It is committed to rescuing homeless animals and treating them with compassion. The charity depends on volunteers who care for the animals and donations from the public.
Bring your donation of an item on their wish list of dog or cat food, plain Milkbone treats, towels and blankets, paper towels, dish and hand soap, and trash bags to the May 18th Luncheon Meeting at Pelican Pointe Golf and Country Club.
Enjoy the presentation by the Pet Therapy human volunteer and the canine volunteer who brings the special interaction of warmth and caring.
