Nancy and Truffles have the awesome ability to “talk” to children on an unbiased level through a language of love that they’ll understand. Truffles makes children feel better about themselves because he doesn’t judge and he just wants to put a smile on a child’s face. Truffles, through his unconditional love, encourages others to help those who are less fortunate in their communities to make the world a better place.


​WHAT IS PET THERAPY (OR ANIMAL THERAPY)


Pet Therapy is a type of therapy that involves an animal with specific characteristics...  a calm demeanor, gentle disposition, and friendliness to strangers, among others. Animal therapy is designed to improve the physical, social, emotional, and/or cognitive functioning of an individual, as well as provide educational and motivational effectiveness. The purpose of animal therapy is to help someone recover from or cope with a
health problem or mental disorder, a need for unconditional love and to bring joy to those who need special attention.

ANIMAL THERAPY GUEST SPEAKER:
NANCY STANLEY & TRUFFLES

My mom just cleaned my teeth. I know it looks like I'm mean; but I am just showing you how clean and white they are. It's important that we keep our teeth clean from plaque . It gives us a really nice breath and it keeps us healthy. I really don't like that birthday hat too much.

These are some of the people I visit. There is sure a lot of love being exchanged here. The beautiful Elderly lady in the photo is 100 years old. I really love her so much. Being with all these children and the Elderly makes my world a better place and I have a feeling I'll be doing this until I'm old and gray. I'm not sure chocolate poodles get gray !!!

Guest Speaking And Fun!
