Zebra: How Animals Can Play a Critical Role in a Senior’s Life

Senior Services of Alexandria understands what a critical role animals can play in many seniors’ lives.

There are weekly visits, friendships are formed, and sometimes it includes becoming friends with the volunteer’s pet. To learn more about the effect of animals on seniors and the way pets are being incorporated into the Friendly Visitor program, read the full article on page 48 of this month’s Zebra.
