PAWS 4 Therapy

PAWS 4 Therapy is a pet therapy program that the Peoria Humane Society provides for the Peoria area.  The PAWS 4 Therapy program provides support for the disabled, elderly, and young through regular visits to area hospitals, long-term health care facilities, schools, and residential facilities. Participating dogs are evaluated and required to be registered therapy dogs prior to visiting area locations. The Peoria Humane Society understands the value of the human/animal bond and remains committed to sharing our therapy dogs to those in need.
