Pets to People

Pets to People visits were on hold during the pandemic phase of COVID-19. We are thrilled to announce that we are being welcomed back into the assisted living homes. If you have a therapy dog and would like to make visits, please let us know. Contact Georgia Towle, theluckydogtraining@gmail.com, 360-732-0908.

The Pets to People program is a three-way partnership involving Olympic Mountain Pet Pals volunteers, their beloved family pets and the residents of local assisted living homes. The program was created in light of numerous studies highlighting the health benefits of pet therapy. It is widely recognized that pets make us feel safe, accepted and happy, and that holding or petting a dog can boost our mental and physical health.

OM Pet Pals volunteers share their trained therapy dogs with the residents of Life Care Center, Avamere (formerly Seaport Landing), and Victoria Place on regularly scheduled visitation dates.
