FIRST NAME: Amy LAST NAME: Pitts
REGISTRATION: Pet Partners
In northern Raleigh, esp. Stonehenge and Greystone neighborhoods. Would also be interested in area colleges and universities.
My sweet dog, Garbo, is a Golden Retriever who joined my family when she was 2 years old. She came with some fear issues in her baggage as well as a love of children. We have volunteered as a therapy team for several years now (2009 - present) and prefer familiar venues with established routines. We both enjoy volunteering with children and I LOVE books, so See Spot Read has been a very good fit for us.
Miss Garbo & I are registered with Pet Partners. I also have certifications with Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) & Red Rover Readers (humane education). We are honored to participate with See Spot Read!
