Photo Identification Badges for
Volunteers and Pets
Pets for Life will provide a Photo ID for each human volunteer and each animal volunteer. Just email us a .jpg photo file of you and your pet. If you prefer, send us a photo using regular mail. We will make the photo identification badges and mail them to you. Each badge is laminated and comes with a lanyard for the human and a collar clip for the pet.
Please be sure and wear your photo badge on each Pets for Life visit. This not only identifies you as a volunteer, but also makes others aware of our organization and the service we provide
Canine Apparel: Bandanas or Vests
After certification as one of our pet therapy teams, Pets for Life will provide your pet with a bandana. Our bandanas are in Pets for Life green and come in small and large sizes. Your furry friend will look very professional on visits wearing one of these bandanas!
All new volunteers who complete the certification process receive a bandana.
You can order a vest for your pet from Lisa Schultz at Pup'parel. These vests are made especially for Pets for Life volunteers and their pets. The vest has a patch sewn on the left side that says "Therapy Dog" and "Pets for Life" is embroidered on the back. Each vest can be personalized to include the pet's name. The color of the vest and stitching is customizable. The vests cost approximately $60 depending on the level of customization.
You may contact Pup'parel by sending an email to Lisa Schultz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure and include that you are a Pets for Life Volunteer needing to order a vest. Lisa will help you with sizing and answer any questions that you may have.
Pets for Life Friendship Cards
Many people that we visit in all settings...nursing homes, schools, or events always enjoy receiving a Pets for Life Friendship Card as a memory of the visits and to share with friends. These are the size of regular business cards and contain a photo of your pet, as well as, information about Pets for Life. These cards are available at no cost to all Pets for Life Volunteers. Just send the Pets for Life Office an email requesting Friendship Cards and attach a .jpg file of the photo of your pet that you would like to use and we will provide you with the cards. If you would prefer, just send in the regular mail a photo of your pet and we will copy and use for the Friendship Cards. When the cards are completed, we will send them to you in the regular mail. These are not required, but encourage you to give them a try and see how much adults and children that we visit with enjoy getting them. It is also a great way to promote our organization.
