CARE NC, Inc. takes dogs from the SPCA to visit local assisted living centers and since the SPCA dogs could get adopted at any time they like to have community dogs as their back up. (Anybody in the Raleigh area who wants to see if their dog can be a part of it should contact them, they need more community dogs!)
We took Vegas to visit at The Heritage in North Raleigh. She did great!! It was so sweet to see all the residents so excited about the dogs. We met a couple of the volunteers for the group and they brought a sweet chocolate lab from the SPCA with them. We went up to specific rooms that ask for visitors, knocked on the door and most of them were in their with treats in hand waiting for us! One lady was so sweet, she loves seeing the dogs so much. She had bags and bags of treats and literally pulled out handfuls at a time to feed them. It made her so happy to have Vegas eating right out of her hand.
After visiting in those rooms we headed back downstairs to the lobby and socialized with residents and their families hanging out in the library and common areas. Many of them know the exact time the group is supposed to show up on Thursdays and waits for them :)

On the way home Tyson wanted to be sure his sis could never leave him again:
Maybe one day they can go visit together!
