Friendly Pets

Friendly pet volunteers bring their dogs, cats and other animals to visit the individuals served by New Avenues on weekdays at our Day Services Program or on the weekends at one of our homes.  Volunteers and their animals typically commit to visiting once or twice per month. 
Pets must be gentle and calm around large groups.  They must also be comfortable receiving lots of petting and hugs from our clients!
