WHAT PET PRESCRIPTION TEAM IS:
One of the major activities of the Pet Prescription Team is to provide support for the "Pet Prescription Team," which is made up of volunteers who want to share the joy and value of pet interaction and its overall benefit to society. The Pet Prescription Team is a pet therapy group made up of volunteers who visit nursing homes, hospitals, hospice facilities, children's oncology wards and schools with their certified therapy pets.
The Pet Prescription Team provides assistance to interested pet owners in utilizing their family pets for therapy visits to a variety of locations. The Pet Prescription Team provides the following to volunteers of their organization:
"¢ Assistance and training "¢ Certification
"¢ Liability Insurance
In addition the Pet Prescription team offers two special programs throughout the Southern California area.
The Faith Dog project supported and offered by the Pet Prescription Team.
The Pet Prescription Team (PPT) founded: "The Faith Dog Project" in memory of Brielle Murray and her dog Faith. Brielle was a member of the (PPT) organization and passed away from a very rare form of cancer known as RMS. Before Brielle died the (PPT) organization founded the Faith Dog project which hands out stuffed Faith dogs to children in oncology battling cancer. Brielle lives on through this program as these little stuffed dogs encourage and give hope to all those that receive one in her memory.Faith Dog Project Video The First Faith Dog Presentation
There's No Place Like Home project supported and offered by the Pet Prescription Team
The Pet Prescription Team founded a program called; "There's No Place Like Home" project. This projects goal as well as vision is extremely clear, to take the time and energy to create a relaxing atmosphere for a less fortunate resident/patient room, helping them to pick up their scattered belongings and creating small acts that can leave a lasting impression on their lives giving them hope and purpose.
Decorating a healthcare facility room to a more homelike atmosphere is the Pet Prescription Teams loving way to care for those special resident or patient that has no family or belongings. Simply adding a few decorations, new bed comforters, relaxing chairs, cherished items and a casual rug will instantly change the comfort level and atmosphere of the resident's room and turn it into a;"There's No Place Like Home" room.
Our vision of the; There's No Place Like Home" project is to select a resident/patient each month and assist in making their room feel more like home.
