Albany-- Today was a day for the dogs and rabbits at morningside assisted living center in albany. Hero, charlie, princess grace, and maccoa from paws patrol visited residents who greated them with open arms.

Paws patrol volunteers say the bonds and happiness are enjoyed by both the people and the pets.

"When they come in here they`re happy and they like to share that happinesses with other people and so do the people who bring them" said Paws volunteer Joy Sheckels.

Many of these animals are involved in other programs such as the paws to read program. Which helps students improve reading skills, and also the humane education and animal care program.
