Man's best friend sure knows how to bring a smile to your face! Valley Humane Society improves the lives of those in our community with friendly pet visitation through a program called Canine Comfort. This weekend they’ll participate in East Bay Stand Down helping the homeless and at-risk veterans. Learn more about this great program and how you can get involved with your dog!
We all know that pets can bring an immeasurable value of happiness and improve emotional and physical health. Canine Comfort Pet Therapy by Valley Humane Society shares the unconditional love that pets offer by providing this experience to others throughout our community. On September 16 and 17, VHS Canine Comfort Pet Therapy teams up with their dogs to improve the lives of others in the community at East Bay Stand Down.
Valley Humane Society’s Canine Comfort takes two forms: Paws to Heal provides regular therapeutic pet visitation to medical facilities, schools, and retirement homes throughout the Tri-Valley. Another program, Paws to Read, encourages a love of animals and improves the reading skills of children in cooperation with local libraries and schools. These opportunities can make a huge difference in someone’s life!
