Sally's Angels Campaign for Animals
About This Campaign
This campaign is specifically focused on raising monies to support the Canine Comfort Pet Therapy Programs "Paws to Read" and "Paws to Heal," including materials and management.
"Paws to Read" encourages a love of animals and improves the reading skills of children in cooperation with local libraries and schools. Every time a child reads to a Canine Comfort Pet Therapy dog they receive a sticker of that dog. These stickers are collected on Canine Comfort bookmarks. Both items serve to reward and encourage children's participation, which in turn fosters their reading success. The purchase of additional stickers and bookmarks will offer the opportunity for more children to participate in this beneficial and successful program.
"Paws to Heal" provides therapeutic pet visitation to bedridden veterans, special-needs children, and lonely seniors. Canine Comfort teams carry custom trading cards featuring their dog's photo and some details about the dog. These cards are distributed at various medical facilities, schools, and retirement homes throughout the Tri-Valley. In many cases these dog trading cards can be seen displayed in the rooms of patients, or in the bedrooms of seniors in care facilities. They serve as connection points and enriching conversation pieces to share with other visitors.
In 2016, nearly 10,000 lives were transformed through these life-enriching programs.
Please contribute your time, talent and treasures to Valley Humane Society!!
