Pet Therapy at Covenant Home (Pet Owners Only)

Share the joy and affection your pet brings to you with residents at an assisted-living facility for seniors. Residents gather in a large room to meet pets and volunteers. Animals of any kind are welcome as long as they are friendly, current on their shots, and will interact well with people and other animals in a group setting. This program is a fun social outlet for residents and decreases loneliness and isolation, particularly for those with mental disabilities who may not be able to participate in other activities.

  • Please bring two copies of your pet’s shots records the first time you attend this project.

  • If you do not have a pet but would like to participate, please search for “Pet Therapy at the Covenant Home (Non Pet Owners Only)” project.

Partner: Covenant Home of Chicago offers supportive living for seniors in an apartment setting with an array of amenities and programs. The facility promotes resident self-direction and participation in decisions that emphasize dignity and independence. Covenant Home has been a Chicago Cares partner since 2011 for this project.
