Pets On Wheels of Delmarva was founded in 1993 by a group of dedicated individuals and has grown to encompass the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. We are a group of volunteer teams (pet and handler) who visit nursing homes, assisted living homes, homes for the handicapped, schools and other facilities. We find that our friendly visits are always welcomed by residents, their care givers and students alike. Pet volunteers have an instinctive way of giving comfort and joy to folks which often exceeds human contact. Pets On Wheels of Delmarva is a non-profit organization, completely staffed by volunteers and dependent on contributions for all costs.
