Are you and your pet looking to meet new friends and make a difference in the lives of older adults in your community? PetPals are canine and feline volunteers (and their owners) who visit elderly residents in long-term care facilities. PetPals volunteers participate in a brief training and animal behavior assessment, and are matched with one of 36 sites in metro Boston. These teams bring the “healing power of pets” to elders every week or twice per month. If this sounds like something you and your furry friend might be interested in, please complete a volunteer application.
