Woof! Woof! Meet Some of Our Pet Volunteers!

Residents are greeted by wagging tails and puppy kisses and fond new memories are created! Pet visitation volunteers and their animals bring joy, love, companionship and even health benefits to those they visit. Pet therapy also helps support the social, emotional and cognitive function of those it serves.

Lutheran Senior Services has many wonderful volunteers who provide pet visits: Duo (formerly Support Dogs, Inc), Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) , Furry Friends Recovery, as well as individuals, residents, and staff. This has been a huge blessing for so many of our residents. We are grateful for the service these volunteers and their furry friends provide.
