Another Amazing Pet Partner Workshop

Paws & Effect taught a Pet Partner workshop at St Luke's in Cedar Rapids this weekend.

We continue to be amazed with the number of individuals who want to volunteer with their pets and the way St. Luke's has fully embraced the positive impact these animals can have on those we visit. Thanks to all that attended the workshop and we look forward to a successful evaluation in a few short weeks.
