A 'Dynamic Duo'
Honey, a Yorkshire terrier, and her owner, Rosalind Deede of Woodinville, were recently registered as a person-animal volunteer team qualified to provide animal-assisted activities. The duo will provide informal animal contact opportunities to hospital patients, nursing home residents and people in other facilities.
"Honey has the natural ability to make people smile and relax," said Deede, explaining why they became involved in the Pet Partners Program which was created by Delta Society. For more information on the program, call (425) 235-1076.
