Member Profiles

We currently have over 200 Therapy Team volunteers. Our members are a dedicated group of volunteers active in a myriad of dog training and competition venues in addition to their pet therapy work, community and religious group involvement, and social and professional endeavors.

Read below what some of our members have to say about the work they do. Learn from our volunteers what we do, and how we do it, but most importantly why we do it.


Sharon Anderson and Bandit

Sharon Anderson and BanditBandit and I have been members of Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati since the group was officially formed. The people at Ronald McDonald House "introduced" me to Glenna. We had started on our own going twice a month to a small nursing home close to Oxford where we live. We now also go to Ronald McDonald House and the Fairfield Lane Library where Bandit is the reading dog. We have been visitors to the Edgewood Middle School, spoke to the Oxford Kiwanis, and have participated in several programs with Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati.   Read More...


Jane Dewey and Diva

Jane Dewey and Diva

Diva is my 4 year old tri-color Pembroke Welsh Corgi. She replaced my first therapy dog when she retired. Diva competes in agility trials 2-3 weekends a month and is a very high energy, high-drive dog, but when she goes to Bethesda North Hospital or Ronald McDonald House she morphs into this wonderful therapy dog that wants to meet and greet everyone in sight! She started her work at the age of one and as time has passed she definitely feels that she rules the hospital. Everyone knows her name! She seeks out her favorite nurses as she makes her rounds. Her jaunty attitude brings a smile to patients and staff alike.    Read More...

 



 


Amy Hudoba and Sparky

Amy Hudoba and Sparky

I was unaware of pet therapy programs at the time of my retirement which was at the time Sparky came into our lives at the age of eight weeks. While I was visiting a friend at Jewish Hospital, a Therapy Team came to visit her, and we witnessed firsthand the difference a pet can make to someone who is ill. Our friend’s day was totally brightened by this visit. So, it was upward and onward for my planning to get Sparky trained and certified by his first birthday so we could visit and make a difference….unconditional love.   Read More...



 


Terri Ralenkotter and Seti

Terri Ralenkotter and Seti

I became interested in Pet Therapy during a visit to Children’s Hospital where I saw some Therapy Dogs and thought that Chloe would be a good candidate. I soon made arrangements for us to be evaluated and within a month or so we were visiting a nursing home and several hospitals.    Read More...

CJ Savage and Lincoln

Lincoln, a 3-year-old Labradoodle, spent his first year in the Indiana prison system learning to be an assistance dog. The Big Guy was a little frightened around things like revolving doors so the warden gave him an early release.    Read More...

Maureen Walczak and Tootsie have been a Therapy Team since February, 2008. This summer the Team began volunteering at the Campbell and Boone County libraries in the summer R.E.A.D. programs. Their work has been so impressive that they were featured on the front page of the August 13 Kentucky Enquirer: "Dogs Are Good Listeners."    Read More...
