Together: Pet Partners
Hey ModiFamily, it’s Michelle here. If you’ve interacted with me for more than 5 minutes at any time, then you’ve probably heard me talk about my love of dogs (namely my pup Ninja!)
It’s true – I’m a dog lover (to say the very least). For me, there is nothing like coming home from a long, stressful day than to be greeted by the wagging tail, lick on the cheek, and pure happiness he exudes every time I walk through the door. I’ve always felt my pets have positively impacted my life, so it came as no surprise to me when I started learning more about therapy and service animals and the incredible impacts they are making on the lives of people in need.
Modify is thrilled to be partnering with Pet Partners as our
Together partner for the month of March.
Pet Partners is the leader in demonstrating and promoting positive human-animal interaction to improve the physical, emotional and psychological lives of those they serve.
Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program provides ‘gold standard’ therapy animal curriculum &
training and inspires people to volunteer with their pets in their local communities. The volunteers and their pets have been credited for helping people forget about their pain, providing distractions for pediatric patients so nurses can perform medical procedures, inspiring patients recovering from strokes to perform more physical therapy exercises, and even bringing people
out of comas.
With over 11,000 trained volunteers they are able to share the healing power of animals with people all over the world.
Aside from their therapy animal program, they provide resources for healthcare, educational and other professionals so they can learn how to safety and effectively incorporate therapy animals into their practices.
It’s truly inspiring to see how big of an impact simple acts like petting a dog or snuggling with a cat can have on someone in need. I hope you’ll take some time to learn more about Pet Partners and the incredible things they are accomplishing every day.
