Welcome to Furry Friends
Therapy Dogs Info page
It has long been demonstrated that the comforting interaction between animals, dogs in particular, and humans have lessened, and even alleviated, some of  the may afflictions associated with aging, depression, poor health, hospital stays or confinement.

It is the Group’s belief that even brief visits and contact with gentle pets have actually contributed to the mental well being of many individuals.
