Seneca Lake Terrace welcomes a new “Therapy Dog” to our pet therapy program named “Keith”. Keith is a registered therapy dog and is a standard poodle. What are the benefits of attending “Pet Therapy”? Animals help lift a person’s mood as animals offer genuine affection and unconditional love. Touching and interacting with animals can help lower a person’s blood pressure and provide stress relief. What do the animals do? They accept and are open to whoever the person is and whatever that persons needs. It is as if the animal says, “Here I am”. Mark your calendars and join us in the benefits of “Pet Therapy”.
