Licensed Therapy Dog / Greeter
Many of you are familiar with our very sweet, very furry greeter.
But many of you don't know that he is actually a licensed therapy dog!
Pet therapy has proven to be soothing and provides a calming effect for our grieving families. Immediately Ozzy comforts our families just by his presence alone.
Pet therapy is truly powerful!
Since Ozzy joined our team at the funeral home 6 years ago, many clients have specifically sent thank you cards to him. He receives homemade treats and families even come back to our funeral home just to sit on the couch and pet him.
He's developed an uncanny knack for knowing who needs him, parking himself right next to an older person to let them pet him one minute, and the next he's prancing around playing with the kids. It's really been impressive to watch. As word of Ozzy has spread, most clients request Ozzy's presence at their memorial services. He's part of the team, there's no question about that. It's clear that he's eager to be a part of what we do and wants to help people.
