Dog Outside

“Volunteers (human and animal) are the life-blood of our organization. We would not exist without them. Quality of life is often improved through amplifying simplicity and elevating the ordinary. Animals very powerfully invite us into the present moment. Being in the present is where life is and when Pet Partners visit there is an invitation to be present; that in and of itself is healing. It is the expansion of oneself that is transcended by human and animal presence. This is much of what Compassionate Paws stands for.”

D’Ann Downey
