Humane Society of the Treasure Coast Pet Therapy Continues During Pandemic

7 Jul 2020 2:35 PM | FAAWO (Administrator)

There are many stories that have inspired us during the pandemic.  During the COVID-19 lockdown eight volunteers with Misty’s Pals, a pet therapy program of the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast, made an unusual visit to Symphony at Stuart, an assisted living facility. Typically, these volunteers and their pets spend time visiting with the residents indoors but due to COVID-19 restrictions, they remained outdoors and visited residents outside their windows.  They have ongoing relationships with 19 nursing homes/assisted living facilities and two hospitals in Martin and St. Lucie counties.
