Therapet visits Henry & Peters!
Three Therapet human/animal volunteer teams visited the Tyler office of Henry & Peters, to help relieve work-related stress during our busiest time of year, on Tuesday, April 11th.
Volunteers Wendy Gerard and her labradoodle Murray, Nancy Roddy and her beagle Henry, and Susan Strawn and her golden retriever Concho gave staff an opportunity to experience the stress-relieving effects of interacting with therapy animals.
Therapet Executive Director Carianne Fisher said, "We were looking for a creative way to say thank you to the area businesses that support us. We talked with Henry & Peters and we agreed that a visit with some of the Therapet teams during a potentially stressful time would be a wonderful way to show our gratitude while giving the staff a better idea of what Therapet does."
