Lynn Robinson Executive Director and Founder of Paws For People discussed her organization and how it grew from her taking one special dog for visits, to an agency that provides pet therapy in four states.  She explained pet therapy is still the most effective, least expensive type of alternative therapy;  the reasons people can bond with therapy pets, it’s a non-competitive relationship and they don’t have preconceived ideas or expectations of you.

She described how clients find they can talk and confide in these animals and told of her hope to start a program putting a therapy dog in every school.   Paws For People depends on volunteers with loving, gentle pats – dogs, cats and rabbits, who are trained to make calls to private and group homes, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities and nursing homes, schools and even prisons.  Donations and fundraisers supplement the fees to keep it running, the November 14th they are hosting an Art Auction at their website, PawsForPeople.org.  They also have their annual Wag-n-Walkathon and their just released pet calendar, available at their office and event.  You can find Paws For People at the National Dog Show as Pet Therapy Ambassadors November 19th and 20th at the Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks.
