Based on information from research groups (and from our very own residents!), it is quite clear that visits from specially trained animal friends can help with the healing process and curb boredom and loneliness. These caring animals offer comfort and diversion for residents of Assisted Living communities and patients at skilled nursing facilities and hospitals. Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) is expanding their animal therapy program “Pet Hug Pack” to East Contra Costa County. To apply to train as a pet therapy volunteer, you must first meet the requirements for becoming a Pet Hug Pack Volunteer. Please join us for an informational meeting on Saturday, May 12, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at The Commons at Dallas Ranch, 4751 Dallas Ranch Road, Antioch, CA 94531. Light refreshments will be served. To RSVP or for more information contact Dina Osakue, Community Relations Director at (925) 754-7772.
