Pet Therapy for Elders
Alpha and Achilles are both rescue dogs saved from abandonment and abuse. These loving animals bring Joy and Happiness to the elderly in their homes, nursing homes and hospital settings. Alpha, on the left, was beaten, starved and abused. His owner was going to put him down because he didn't want him at 10 months. Holly rescued him and now, a year later, he is a therapy dog with the elderly bringing comfort to sad and lonely elders. Achilles is the champagne colored dog, abandoned at 2 weeks of age. Holly's
daughter nursed him on a medicine dropper for weeks and though his sister, also abandoned, died, Achilles survived and is also bringing joy and love to many.
