We’ve given away more than 48 pets to individuals and facilities in the past three years, including several last December to caregivers who wanted one as a gift for a loved one with dementia. This December we are hoping that more pets find their way as gifts. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 910-585-6757 to inquire about receiving one.
Those with dementia who had a pet earlier in life often seem to yearn for the comfort their dog or cat had provided, and sometimes verbally ask for a dog or cat, even if it is not by their pet’s name.
Read the post below to learn how we got started in giving away the pets.
