Would your pet make a good therapy pet? Here’s your chance to find out.

Two Southborough Girl Scouts — Nicolette Vere and Lily Pearl — have organized an event to help people learn what it takes to train their pets as therapy pets. Read more in this press release they sent along:

Attention all well-mannered dogs! Bring your owner and learn about how to become a therapy pet on Saturday, September 25 between 2:00 and 5:00 pm at Especially for Pets, 153 Turnpike Rd (Rt. 9 Westbound), Westborough.

Drop in and learn from the experts about how to become a therapy pet, what temperament and training pets need to become therapy pets. Even a regular, well-behaved household pet can become a therapy pet.

Therapy pets go around to senior homes, hospitals and learning facilities and provide companionship and stimulation to the people they visit.

Nicolette Vere and Lily Pearl, Southborough Girl Scouts, have organized this event as part of their Silver Award Project. Their goal is to spread awareness of the need for therapy pets in the community and teach pet owners how they can make their pet a therapy pet. For more information, email furrytherapy@yahoo.com.

A nice event. Good luck to the girls as they work toward their Silver Award, which is the Girl Scouts’ highest award for girls ages 11 to 14.
