The $5,000 PDF grant will help train 13 new volunteer teams for their pet-assisted therapy program for children. PAWS for People is the only organization in the Mid-Atlantic region dedicated solely to animal-assisted therapy. With 350 active animal-assisted therapy teams, this organization provides one-on-one pet therapy and comfort to children and adults with physical, social and emotional challenges in Delaware and three surrounding states. The 13 new teams will each make 2 – 8 visits a month so the grant will generate 1,000 hours of help to people of all ages.
