Bringing Unconditional Love through Human-Animal Interaction Animals often bring out the best in people. They can calm hyperactive children or stimulate movement and interaction in those with physical disabilities. The Pet Encounter Therapy (PET) program brings the unconditional love and tactile benefits of animals to people in a variety of settings– skilled nursing facilities, children’s shelters, hospitals, psychiatric units and many more. Groups also have the option to visit the Center for on-site programs. Staff and volunteers take dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and guinea pigs to visit more than 50 facilities a month, with many organizations on our waiting list. Studies document that holding and caressing an animal provides benefits such as relaxation, lower blood pressure, improved long- and short-term memory, and sensory stimuli. During our PET visits, we’ve seen movement from unresponsive patients or heard words spoken for the first time– all to the amazement of fellow residents and staff members. Like the rest of the Center, PET relies on private donations to fund the program. Very little revenue is generated by PET because services are offered free of charge to non-profit facilities and charge only a $27 to $47 fee per visit for other facilities; revenues generated only pay about one-twentieth of the department’s operating budget. Currently, we have a long waiting list of facilities to visit and need additional funding before we can expand our service. In addition to one-time donations, donors also have the opportunity to sponsor a facility, an animal in the program or support the program for an entire year! These sponsor opportunities are also available to corporations looking to make a difference in their community.
