TO LEARN MORE about how Pet Therapy works is to hear the many stories of hope that our volunteers share with us each week. One of the volunteers (Arlene Melton) described going to the room of a very ill woman. The women's son, who was sitting with her, told Arlene not to bother bringing a pet in to visit his mother. He did not think his mom would make it through the night. Arlene said, "well it couldn't hurt to put one of the pets on the bed to be near her for a minute. The son said "O.K." and within minutes the women had her eyes open and ultimately sat up so she could pet the puppy better. At this, the son and Arlene both burst into tears. When asked, the patient said that she would look forward to a visit the following week.
