Fairfax'Pets on Wheels' seeking to expand its reach

‘Pets on Wheels’ seeking to expand its reach

Must Read

Fairfax Pets on Wheels has reached its 35th anniversary of “licking loneliness” by bringing pets into nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and adult-day-health centers throughout the county, and is seeking the public’s health in expanding its reach.

The organization currently has a waiting list of facilities that would like to be part of the program. “But more volunteer/pet teams are needed to meet the demand,” leaders of the organization said.

“If you have a lovable dog, cat or bunny that would enjoy putting a smile on someone’s face, consider becoming a pet-visitation team, and share the power of the human-animal bond with our neighbors who need it most,” the organization said. “You’ll touch someone’s life – and change your own.”

Founded in 1987, the all-volunteer Fairfax Pets on Wheels is approved by the American Kennel Club as a therapy-dog group. Its efforts are sponsored by the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging.
