It is our intention for the program to be as rewarding for you, the volunteer, and your pet, as it is for the individuals
you are visiting. Please feel free to discontinue your visits at any time, if you feel uncomfortable. Your initial visits
may start out to be emotionally draining, but as your relationship with the people or certain individuals grows, these visits
can become an enriching aspect of your life. We also want the best for your pet. Even though the visits may be worthwhile for
the humans involved, be conscious of your pet’s reception to this attention. It may react negatively to the new sights, smells,
sounds and constant handling. If your pet becomes bored, unfriendly or unruly, please remove it from the environment at once and
contact your coordinator. Remember: you know your pet best and we want you both to enjoy the experience.
