We are gradually resuming some visits.
Things can change from day to day but as of now KPETS is resuming certain types of therapy visits. Some volunteers are ready help de-stress and comfort friends in our local communities through the human/animal bond. We are doing this with safety as a top priority. Safety for all – those we visit, our volunteers, and our pets. Touching Lives / Warming Hearts is what we do best, and we hope we can help everyone move forward.
Registered KPETS volunteers and their companion animals promote well-being and offer encouragement in our communities by sharing the power and benefits of human-animal interactions.
Serving local communities in health-related facilities, social agencies, special-needs programs, schools, libraries, retirement communities and hospices, KPETS teams readily visit wherever the human/animal connection may be beneficial. KPETS services are free of charge. Established in 2003, KPETS has grown into an organization with more than 400 volunteer teams, providing over 10,000 hours of animal assisted therapy to over 300 facilities every year.
View the video of our Volunteers of the Year, Gregg Maberry along with Calvin and Hobbs! Gregg and “the boys” were recognized at the KPETS Tails of Comfort Dinner, Sunday, March 31, 2019. This honor is so well-deserved as you’ll see a very small sampling of what they do when you watch this video. Thank you Gregg and “the boys” for sharing your time and compassion with others.
