Special Programs

To be agents of change within our community, the Pensacola Humane Society believes in offering unique services that help others in need. 

Pet Therapy
The Pensacola Humane Society offers pet therapy to the community. 

In order to branch out in the community like the Pensacola Humane Society hopes, we need more volunteers and pets. All pets should be up-to-date on all vaccinations, calm, clean, flea- and tick-free, have their nails trimmed and get along with other animals. Pets also should be well-behaved and not afraid of wheelchairs or walkers. Most animals are accepted and are required to be Delta Society certified.

If you and your pet would like to help make a difference in an older person’s life, contact Sarah Humlie at 850-432-4250 for more information, or email director@pensacolahumane.org


Reading, Writing, and Rover Program
Our Reading, Writing and Rover program is a fun, school program that teaches responsible pet ownership to children. In order to encourage protection and welfare of animals, we feel that children should be educated at an early age about how to care for a pet.

The program involves volunteers going into the classrooms with pets.

A basic outline on pet care is followed and the children are encouraged to ask questions.

We currently need volunteers that have Delta Society Certified dogs.

If you would like further information on this program or if you would like to volunteer, please contact Janice Monks at 850-477-8700 or gtmpens@bellsouth.net.
