Fairfax Pets on Wheels is an all-volunteer program sponsored by the Fairfax Area Agency on Aging and is a United Way agency (#8907). FPOW provides pet therapy with teams of animals and their human companions who regularly visit area long-term care facilities. Last year, organization volunteers provided over 8,000 hours of service, improving the quality of life for residents by allowing them to interact with animals.
