April 7-13, 2019 is #VolunteerAppreciationWeek, and Pet Partners wants to celebrate all of the dedicated volunteers who are the heart of our Therapy Animal Program! During the week we’ll be sharing stories on social media about some of our volunteers and how important they are to our program, to their communities, and to each other.
Today in honor of #VolunteerAppreciationWeek, we have a special thank you for our international volunteers who are diligently working to bring Pet Partners into new communities around the globe. Pet Partners now has international volunteers in more than a dozen countries over four continents. We recently held our first team evaluator practicum in Greece! The work of our international volunteers helps ensure that the high standards of our Therapy Animal Program and the benefits of the human-animal bond reach people all over the world.
