They Bring Comfort To Those In Need

April 26, 2019

Mayor Levar Stoney recognizes that there are a growing number of Therapy Animal Teams in the Richmond area so he has added RVA to National Therapy Animal Day!  Pet Partners which is the organization that registers Therapy Animals, declared April 30th (this coming Tuesday) National Therapy Animal Day a few years ago and is asking cities all over the country to join in recognizing the day.  

These animals visit hospitals, court rooms, schools, nursing homes and other places where there is a need.   Mayor Levar says “We’re proud to join Pet Partners in celebrating these exceptional animals and their human handlers, as they continue to serve our community.”

Whoop! Whoop!
