Humane Hearts Pet Therapy Team

The Humane Hearts Pet Therapy team continues to support the community in any way possible. Our 53 volunteers and their dogs visit schools, libraries and assisted living homes in the Forsyth County area.  In particular, 9 dogs visit over 20 classes at Coal Mountain Elementary.  This includes special needs and general classes where children read to the dogs. We thank Dr. Deana Brown, the counselor at Coal Mountain, for welcoming us into the school. Dr. Brown tells us “…. some of our special ed friends that communicate very little have started looking for the dogs and actually articulating “doggy”  – this is huge!!!!!!  Additionally, we have some general education friends that have indicated “I love the days when Ruger comes – it makes me want to get up and come to school”  …how awesome is that!”
