New Teams Needed

The list of facilities that would like to benefit from Pet Therapy/Enrichment is growing. We are looking for new trained teams to meet the demand.  We have added Katie and her boxer, CiCi to our group.  They are ready for pet therapy.  However, we still need interested people who have wonderful dogs and some extra time to consider becoming a Pet Therapy Team.  For more information of what is involved, visit http://www.therapyanimals.org or look through this website for articles and photos of training, evaluations and the great fun we have with our special BARCC pets!
