She exposes them to many animals, sounds, different environment and settings. Sherri has a natural healing touch when it comes to animals, and we are honoured to have her as part of our Argos Pet Ranch family.

Volunteers - Gratitude Crew

We are honoured to have a group of young children between the ages of 6-12 years who call themselves the Gratitude Crew. They come and volunteer with us at the ranch and choose to be here with the dogs even for their birthdays. Each one of these children are animal lovers who are learning to be better human beings from their four-legged friends. They also play a vital role in helping some of our guests feel secure and help them learn to trust humans. Most dogs seem to connect with children at a much faster pace. This group had done an exceptional job in fund-raising for different causes over the past few years. For one of their missions, they raised over $30,000.

Our staff, clients, dogs, and volunteers are the pillars of our facility. Without even one we would be incomplete.
