Pet Therapy

Volunteers from the Miami Valley Pet Therapy Association provide a unique program to youth at MVJRC. The pets; almost exclusively dogs, and their handlers offer eight week sessions each year at the facility. Each session offers a different lesson and involves the staff and youth in an interactive learning experience with the volunteers and their dogs. The youth respond enthusiastically to the animals as they learn “hands on” important lessons regarding relationships, diversity, respect, service and gratitude.
