Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) is looking for people who like to scratch some bellies and be on the receiving end of doggie kisses over the next six months.
In partnership with St. John Ambulance Therapy Dogs, the CKPL is pleased to offer Therapy Dog Saturdays when area residents can visit the library for canine comfort and cuddles.
Therapy Dogs will visit the Chatham Branch on Saturday once a month from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m on Jan. 19, Feb. 16, March 16, April 13, May 11 and June 8.
Spending time with Therapy Dogs has many benefits and these trained companions provide canine affection for those unable to have a pet. They provide a great opportunity for little ones to become acquainted with animals and also provide stress and anxiety relief for those struggling with busy schedules.
Everyone is welcome and no registration is required. Drop in to say hi or stay a while. Therapy Dog Saturdays are open to all ages.
