Pets Helping People

Pets Helping People is a group that brings rescued greyhound dogs to local nursing homes in order to let them interact with the residents. This simple act brightens up the residents' days by letting them give affection as well as receive it, and Pets Helping People shares this feeling by visiting 3 nursing homes and about 200 residents a week. Pets Helping People gets together almost every week, generally on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. Contact us if you'd like to hear about specific trip dates and times!
