Member Profile: Lance and his Pet Partner Matilda

MatildaLong-time DOC members are used to seeing Lance accompanied by a Bernese Mountain Dog. Lance and his previous Pet Partner, Baloo, visited for many years; his new Pet Partner is 2-1/2-year-old Matilda. They visit at the UW dorms, expos and fairs, and are planning to visit at both Meriter and the VA Hospital. Lance has seen the value of therapy dog visits from both sides – through his own visits with Baloo and when his mom received visits from a DOC team when she was in the hospital.  Lance describes Matilda as a very active young girl who runs constantly and fetches tennis balls like a Lab.  She loves the attention she gets when she makes pet therapy visits.

DOC Pet Profile: Leelo

LeeloLeelo is a 6 year old toy terrier mix who enjoys life to the max. Calm and gentle with an ‘old soul’ wisdom, Leelo is a confident little dog with a keen interest in everything around her.  Leelo enjoys visiting at the hospital to share a little terrier sunshine and happiness.  At just under 8 lbs, Leelo is ‘kid size’ and has a special affinity and gentleness with children;  kids who may be scared of dogs are usually comfortable petting little Leelo’s ears which are soft like a bunny’s.  Leelo also enjoys volunteering at Dane County Humane Society events to ‘pay it forward’ and thank the people at DCHS who helped her find her forever home 3 years ago.  When not out visiting, Leelo enjoys chasing squirrels in her back yard, visiting the local dog parks, and playing with her two crazy sisters, Sunny the toy fox terrier and Maize Mae Brown the chihuahua.

Chance and Cate at Agrace HospiceCare

Cate and Chance 2DOC member Cate and her dog Chance were recently featured in an article in the Agrace HospiceCare newsletter. Cate and Chance are part of the Agrace Pet Buddy program and, as part of that program, have been visiting Agrace hospice patients at community facilities in the Madison area.  Agrace patients truly appreciate the support provided through a therapy team visit, and these dog visits are a special treat for the hospice patients and their families.  Agrace is always looking for more pet therapy teams to visit Agrace patients in community assisted living/nursing homes and in the Agrace Inpatient Unit.  Agrace provides special training to all volunteers. If you are a DOC team and are interested in this rewarding volunteer experience, please contact Lydia at lydiaz@dogsoncall.org
