WHO: Paws of War
WHAT: Pet Therapy Event at Nursing Home
As the country increasingly begins to open back up following the pandemic closures, Paws of War will begin providing Pet Therapy once again with the mission of putting smiles back on the faces of their local community. This particular event will be held at one of the local nursing homes; The Smithtown Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care.
Our local communities and those in the nursing homes, including the Veterans residing there, always enjoy getting visits from therapy dogs. Paws of War will be providing therapy dog services to the Smithtown Center on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.
Paws of War rescues, trains and places rescues dogs and cats to serve and provide independence to our Veterans and First Responders who suffer the traumatic effects of wars and disasters. They do this so our heroes in need can experience the therapeutic relief and unconditional love only a companion animal or service dog can bring. Additionally, the organization also provides Pet Therapy services and helps soldiers relocate their rescued pets back to America after deployment through their War-Torn Pups and Cats Program.
The organization will have three to four teams that will be providing Pet Therapy Services to the residents that are currently residing at the Smithtown Center. Pet Therapy will provide moral support, help increase morale, provide overall comfort and social interaction to the residents.
