PetPALS Program

Our pets provide us with companionship, comfort, and friendship.  Why not share this with others? Members learn to select, socialize, and train appropriate pets to participate in animal-assisted activities.

If you are interested in the Lorain County PetPALS program, contact our office to be connected with our PetPal coordinator!
