Love on a Leash, a volunteer program at Robinson Memorial Hospital that enhances the patient and visitor experience through dog visits, will host evaluations for potential new pet partner teams on April 12 at the Robinson Medical Arts Building in Ravenna.
All Love on a Leash handlers (minimum 18 years of age) and their dogs (minimum 1 year old) are required to complete the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Handler Course and pass the Pet Partners Skills and Aptitude Evaluation to ensure that the animal is appropriate for visiting in a health care setting.
The Handler Course must be completed prior to participating in the evaluation session. Teams interested in becoming members of Love on a Leash at Robinson are also screened through the hospital's Volunteer Services Department.
To obtain additional information about Pet Partners, Love on a Leash and to schedule an evaluation appointment on April 12, contact Volunteer Services at 330-297-2591.
