Candlelighters Celebrate National Therapy Animal Day
We spent National Therapy Animal Day with the most wonderful families. Our partnership with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation provides fun activities with our therapy animals and today we hosted “Paws for a Break.”The children picked Action Cards and performed that Action with each pet they visited. When the kids arrived they were given these amazing Passports with a page for each pet. Then the handlers were given little stickers to mark each animal’s Passport page after they met their animal. The children collected all the stickers and trading cards and were so excited to meet everyone. The kids had a blast and the therapy animals even more so! We had such a full day we forgot to take our group photo! But we will have more photos soon.
Here are a few more photos from today – we cannot show you the children’s faces but know they were smiling from ear to ear.
