Playful pups from the Humane Society of the Calumet Area are a welcome sight for patients and residents at Hartsfield Village Rehabilitation Center. Recently, Shelter Director Todd Howard brought a couple of frisky dogs to brighten the seniors’ day.
“Our residents and patients love all the tail wagging, joyful barking and slobbery kisses from the cute puppies,” said Sally Boss, Recreational Therapist and Activities Specialist, Hartsfield Village Rehabilitation Center and Nursing Care. “This has been a day to remember.”
The Activities Department at Hartsfield Village Continuing Care Retirement Community and residents made homemade dog treats and assembled baskets to donate to the Humane Society. During their visit, the ‘doggie donations’ were presented to Humane Society representatives.
“We appreciate that they include our residents and patients in their outreach efforts,” said Boss.
