DOGS IN HOSPITAL BEDS - CATS IN LAPS - Have you ever wondered if you and your dog or other pet would be good at visiting children in hospitals or people in nursing homes? Come learn about visiting! Children in hospitals, people in nursing homes, and other people in need can feel lonely, bored, sick, frightened, or just not too good. All that can go away for a little while when a person brings their dog or other pet to visit. Come learn about Animal Assisted Activities and Therapy Dogs on Monday, June 6th, 6:30 PM at St Joan of Arc's Church, 100 Willow Bend Rd, Marlton NJ, in Pedata Hall. Mr. Phil Arkow, renowned pioneer and expert in Animal Assisted Activities, will speak. Barbara Silverstein, a tireless worker in the fields of Therapy Dogs and AAA, will give a demonstration. Please feel free to spread the word about this meeting to your friends and co-workers. Please don't bring your pets to the meeting. If you're standing in front of St Joan's go around the right side, where you'll see a large bank of glass doors. Enter, turn right and almost immediately on your left hand you'll see the entrance to Pedata Hall.
