The Greater Cincinnati Council for Pets Helping People was organized as a non-profit organization in 1982.
Visiting with animals can help people feel less lonely and less depressed. An animal visit can offer entertainment, or a welcome distraction from pain and infirmity. Stroking a dog or cat can reduce a person’s blood pressure. Petting encourages use of hands and arms, stretching and turning. Many people in hospitals or group homes have had to give up pet ownership and they miss the casual acceptance a pet gives them. The benefits continue even after the visit. The visit leaves behind memories not only of the visit, but of past experiences. The desire to nurture is strong and basic human need and therapy pets can meet this need for people of all ages.
