Therapy dog Jesse came to Little Veterinary School Summer Camp at Cubberley Community Center in Palo Alto on Monday, July 24, accompanied by his person Chris Witzel. Jesse is a comfort dog who visits homebound seniors and people who are hospitalized or are in assisted living facilities. He’s also been a valuable volunteer in PAHS’ education programs.
After learning about extending kindness to our pets and using best practices in caring for them, the campers were introduced to the ways dogs help us as service and therapy animals. They were very happy to get to know Jesse, and the feeling was mutual.
PAHS will be at one more session of this camp on Monday, July 31. Our area of discussion will be kindness to domestic and farm animals and rescue of these animals.
