Pets Make Great Adult Companions

March 24, 2010


The Advisory Board meets at least quarterly if not sooner as the need arises. The board is comprised of an individual from each of the homes that comprise Adult Services. The board spent a considerable amount of meetings putting together a protocol for pet ownership. We spent many months working on the criteria of what constitutes to being a responsible owner. Some of the aspects we discussed were: making sure of the requirements necessary for their particular pet, making sure the cost of vet bills are covered, etc. We currently have 6 pets in Adult Services that are being cared for by the Adult Individuals, we have cats, guinea pigs and a cockatiel. Others are in the process of looking into being pet owners and researching the needs of their future pet. What a joy to see the proud faces of the owner as they discuss their pets!

“It often happens that a man is more humanely related to a cat or dog than to any human being.”
