Bow Wow Babies
- Huntington,NY US
With pet stores in the New York area, BowWow Babies sells dogs and pet products, and provides grooming services. In addition to its professional successes, BowWow Babies maintains an active commitment to serving the community through activities such as bringing puppies to senior citizen facilities. Senior residents in assisted living and in nursing homes respond positively when animal shelters and other pet caregivers bring dogs and cats for visits. Known as pet therapy, these regular visits from dogs provide comfort and a break from the monotony of living in a senior care facility. For seniors, who often have trouble maintaining close relationships with family and friends, canine and feline visits offer opportunities to engage with creatures that provide unconditional love. Naturally affectionate dogs encourage affectionate responses from the humans they meet. For dogs, some who live in shelters and foster homes, visits with senior citizens offer the animals welcome opportunities to give and receive affection.
