The Peninsula Humane Society Pet Assisted Therapy teams are made up of residents who work in pairs, with their pets, to visit healthcare facilities, drug rehab centers, and correctional facilities. Pets in these teams offer the unique kind of therapy only an animal can provide. Visiting with animals helps people feel less lonely, depressed or anxious while relieving stress and encouraging a general feeling of wellbeing. Paws for Tales our Reading to Dogs program, helps children who have a difficult time reading out loud become more confident and self-assured readers.

This year Unity’s donation will go towards Humane Education programming, which includes a variety of activities such as classroom presentations, tours, animal camps, and educational talks for the public. Thank you for your support!
