WITH PETS ON WHEELS
1 - Spring 2002
Pets on Wheels is an all-volunteer,
non-profit organization dedicated to providing companionship to
patients of nursing homes and hospitals.
NOTE FROM HEATHER
would like to take this time to thank each and every one of you
for the time you give to Pets on Wheels. April is volunteer appreciation
month and its another reason to let you know that you touch the
lives of each person you and your pet visit. I hope that each
of you is aware of the positive effects you have on the residents
and the patients you visit. I hope you have had an experience
that makes you smile each time you think of it. Thank you again
for all you do. I hope to see you April 6 at the fundraiser.
TO MARK YOUR CALENDER
