Happy news about animals
In Wednesday’s bright spot, there’s a lot of puppy love to go around at one nursing home in Cumberland County.
An 8-year-old chocolate lab named Ella along with a 10-week-old black lab-golden retriever mix Casey are temporary residents at Green Ridge Village in Newville.
A cat also roams the halls there.
The animals were brought in to help create a more homey environment for the residents.
“It definitely, in our facility since the animals have been here created interaction with resident to resident, animal to resident and brought them out of their rooms on a more regular basis,” said Michael Stuck, Nursing Home Administrator.
The puppies go home at night with staff members until they are old enough to stay there full time.
