Pet Therapy

Make someone smile and join our PAWSitive Therapy Team!

As a PAWSitive volunteer you will visit area senior centers with your own dog or a NAHS shelter dog. Your dog needs to be well behaved and current on vaccinations. There are numerous facilities throughout the surrounding communities that would like visits from our volunteers. We will work with you to find the right facility and the right schedule. There are facilities that would like visits during weekdays, weeknights and weekends.

How to Get Started

If you have any questions or are interested in becoming a pet therapy volunteer, please contact the Humane Education Manager, Kristen Funk, at (630) 420-8989 x117 or via email.
