Maverick and other dogs provided emotional support for FEMA workers that were being deployed to the east coast to assist people during Hurricane Florence. One man said that he was feeling down and being able to receive comfort from the pet therapy dogs really helped. The people had an opportunity to cuddle and hold the dogs. It is amazing how you can see someone relax when they are holding or petting a therapy dog. One guy came back to Maverick a few times to cuddle with him. I am so grateful that we were able to provide some comfort during a difficult time. Pets are great therapy. If you have a pet that would make a great therapy pet, contact me. Would love to help you both get certified. We live in a crazy world and it is wonderful to see animals comfort people during tough times. Pet therapy helps people and the dogs.
