Bowie (orange), Mercury (black) and Nicks (black and white) were rescued from the local animal shelter when they were only 4 weeks old. They are brothers and sister. Initially they were only supposed to spend one week at PILLAR due to imminent cold weather, however, we noticed that they like to Interact with people and they brought comfort to clients of all ages that we decided to adopt them. They serve as PILLAR emotional therapy cats. PILLAR clients know them by name and request one, two or all three during their session with the counselor. They live full time on premises and are a little spoiled.
Bolt is a nine-year-old Golden Retriever. He was trained as a therapy dog in Austin, Texas. Bolt brings affection, comfort and joy to clients at PILLAR. He interacts favorably with children, teens and senior citizens. He is very calm and well-behaved and makes those around him very comfortable. At the end of the day Bolt goes home with his owner Arturo Diaz, Jr.
