What is it? 

The Senior Buddies Outreach Program is a program that started in January 2013. We bring a couple of dogs to various nursing homes in the metro area and spend an hour giving love to residents.

Who benefits?

The residents really enjoy our visits and love seeing and petting the dogs. It is also beneficial to our dogs because they get additional love and socialization.

Can I help?

Yes! Volunteers are always needed. You can bring your own dog if he or she would be gentle and calm with the elderly residents, or borrow a Coco’s Heart dog! If you have any questions about this program, please contact our Senior Buddies Coordinator, Alison at events@cocosheartdogrescue.org.
