Hugging a Pet SPEAKS Volumes: Adoption Event
Did you know that animals can help people heal trauma? It’s true! Which is why we are partnering with Tri-County S.P.E.A.K.S. Sexual Assault Center for a special event to help showcase the special healing bond that can occur between animals and humans.
Join us on Saturday, April 22nd from 11am-3pm for the Hugging a Pet SPEAKS Volumes adoption event at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. There will be wonderful food, drinks and of course some amazing puppies serving up some hugs as they seek their forever homes.
Many people experience abusive situations in their lifetime. The long-term effects of these harmful situations can haunt survivors throughout their lives. That is why many medical professionals and treatment providers are coming together to seek broad, holistic approaches to recovery from abuse, including the use of companion animals.
Studies show that interacting with dogs increases oxytocin and dopamine, and decreases cortisol, the stress hormone. So grab your friends and come love on some puppies as we hug some amazing puppies and help heal those in need.
