Visit to Osborn Correctional Institution
a big success!
April 30, 2012 members and teams traveled to Osborn CI in Somers, Ct to visit with inmates on the medical ward and on hospice care.
Some of the comments heard were:
"Thank you", "It is so great to see the dogs!", I wait all year for the visit from the dogs", I have never felt a dog so soft", "He is so BIG!", "I can't tell what it means to me, that you and your dog would come here to visit with us"
Members of this therapy group have been visiting in CT prisons as part of a program started by Deb Richards and her therapy dog, Elijah for almost 10 years as part of the first group of therapy dogs to visit hospice and ill inmates at MacDougal CI, Osborn CI and York Correctional Institute, Niantic, CT.
