Many thanks to Amy Bell of Heritage News for her thoughtful news article on Peaches’ therapy dog work in the Southeast Michigan community.
Peaches has spent quite a bit of time in the community volunteering once a week at the Ann Arbor Open School as part of the Reading Dogs program. She also spent the summer doing visits at the Humane Society of Huron Valley Camp Paws kids camp.
A few times a month, Douglas and Peaches visit the head pain and physical therapy units at the Chelsea Community Hospital and occasionally can be seen at the Chelsea District Library. “She’s a very sweet dog,” said Jan Shamraj, recreational therapist at Chelsea Community Hospital. “She seeks out each patient in the room and wants to interact with everyone.”
