The Chatham Daily News - - NEWS -

The Chatham-Kent Pub­lic Li­brary, in part­ner­ship with

St. John Am­bu­lance Ther­apy Dogs, is of­fer­ing Ther­apy Dog Satur­days to pro­vide ca­nine com­fort and cud­dles.

The ther­apy dogs will visit the Chatham branch on Satur­day, once a month, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., be­gin­ning Jan. 19. The pro­gram will con­tinue on Feb. 16, March 16, April 13, May 11 and June 18.

There are many ben­e­fits to the pro­gram, ac­cord­ing to a me­dia re­lease. Ther­apy dogs pro­vide ca­nine af­fec­tion to those un­able to have a pet and they are a great way for chil­dren to be­come ac­quainted with an­i­mals, as well as a fan­tas­tic stress re­lief for those strug­gling with busy sched­ules.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come, and no regis­tra­tion is re­quired.
