Pet care as a passion – and a job for Latham residents

August 15, 2017

Some of our residents have found great satisfaction in caring for others’ pets and earning money doing what they love.  Daisy, an adult resident and animal lover, recently volunteered her time at Latham’s Pet Care exhibit at this summer’s Paw Palooza event, talking to the public about Latham Centers and its vocational pet walking program.  Daisy is hoping to find a regular pet care job in the Harwich area. 

Dog walking services are provided by a Latham resident (accompanied by a Latham Centers direct support professional), and enable the pet owner to create a schedule for regular exercise for their dog while providing a paid vocational opportunity for Latham  adults who benefit from animal therapy.  For more information about Latham’s Pet Care services, please email Vocational Director Maura Smith at msmith@LathamCenters.org
