Paws On A Mission-Info. Session, Asheville, March 4

PawsonaMissionPaws On A Mission is a pet therapy program with nearly 100 volunteers and 80 therapy dogs who donate services to fifteen agencies in Buncombe and McDowell Counties, as well as Mission Hospital programs. Volunteers provide over 1,700 regularly scheduled visits per year to brighten the lives of patients, nursing home residents, students, and others. The program is a wonderful experience for both humans and dogs alike.

On Sunday, March 4 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM, Paws On A Mission will hold a volunteer information session about the program in the Community Education Room at the Asheville Humane Society Adoption Center, 14 Forever Friend Lane, Asheville (off Brevard and Pond Roads, behind Harmony Volkswagen/Audi and near the Farmers Market).

The information session will cover how to become a registered Pet Therapy Team. Attendees will learn about the attributes of a great team, general requirements and steps for registration with Delta Society of Therapy Dogs, Inc., and the process for becoming a Mission Hospital Volunteer to visit with your dog in healthcare, education and residential settings through Paws On A Mission.

Reserve your spot today (humans only please) by contacting Jade Frank, Pet Therapy Coordinator, via email: jade.frank@msj.org. If you have questions, feel free to contact Jade via email or phone: (828) 213-0131.

The next session is scheduled for Monday, May 14 from 6 to 7:30 PM at the same location.
