Paws to Connect Virtual Visit
August 28, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating indefinitely
Paws & Think’s Paws to Connect program allows individuals to interact virtually with registered Paws & Think therapy teams with the goal of providing a fun break while helping to alleviate stress, loneliness, and feelings of isolation.
These 15-minute, lighthearted visits provide emotional connection and comfort via the power of the human-dog connection.
Research shows that watching someone connect with their dog by petting them activates mirror neurons in the observer, helping to provide the benefit of lowering blood pressure, heart rate, and overall stress levels while increasing dopamine levels in the brain.
Paws to Connect visits are open to the public and all ages are welcome.
