Nursing Home seeking pet owners

Early Memorial Nursing Home is looking for pet enthusiasts willing to share their loved ones with our loved ones.

Early Memorial Nursing Home is gearing up to start a new animal assisted program and seeking support from local pet owners.

Animal assisted pets must be of sound temperament, free of obvious behavior problems such as fear-biting, hyperactivity or abnormal aggression. Also, animal assisted pets must have current vaccinations such as rabies shot, free from infection, fleas and overall appearance of good health.

All animal assisted pets must be approved by the activity director of the facility.

The activities department would also like to branch out this program with other facility re-lated events such as pet parades and dress up your pet day and judging contest.

Anyone interested in volunteering time to this new program is asked to contact the activity department at Early Memorial Nursing Home.

For more information or to schedule a pet visit please contact activity director Janet E. Armstrong or activity assistant Robin James at 724-4246 or send email to JEArmstrong@phscorporate.com.
