ARF’s Pet Hug Pack teams visit hospitals, rehabilitation centers, schools and adult day care facilities throughout Contra Costa County. Pack pets are tested to ensure they’re well-mannered, healthy and possess good temperament. The teams provide unconditional love to the people they visit, testifying to the proven health benefits of petting or holding an animal.
A Pet Hug Pack volunteer drive will be held Saturday, May 12 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at The Commons at Dallas Ranch, 4751 Dallas Ranch Road in Antioch. The event provides attendees information and the opportunity to join ARF in support of the Pet Hug Pack Program. Light refreshments will be served.
According to Dina Osakue, community relations director of The Commons, “Volunteers who are willing to give their time and energy to this important cause are making a commitment to show how invaluable it is to promote good will toward our senior population. Participating in this event is one of many ways to touch the heart of a senior in our community.”
