Paws for People, Newark, Delaware

October 23rd, 2010

10-23-10Lynne Robinson, Executive Director of Paws for People, a Pet-Assisted Visitation Volunteer Service, is the right person for the job. The Kindness Bus Tour was invited to attend their 2nd annual Wag-n-Walk, a fundraiser to support their cause. The team of individuals and corporate sponsors who give their time and resources can rest assured that something very special is taking place. Lynne has the respect of everyone involved in this organization; even the dogs love her, Bogart included.
Dogs are used as loving companions for people in need. From hospice to seniors to reading companions these four-legged friends are providing comfort. The dogs as reading companions caught me by surprise. Children with literacy issues can have a dog visit them. The dogs are read to and are nonjudgmental, so there is no pressure or embarrassment when a struggle with a word or phrase happens. The volunteer helps the child, third person. Pure perfection!
