ROLLING WITH PETS ON WHEELS
Volume 1 - Spring 2002
Pets on Wheels is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing companionship to patients of nursing homes and hospitals.

A NOTE FROM HEATHER
I 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.
