Operation Kindness 101


The Animal Care Team (ACT) of Operation Kindness visits local nursing homes every month. This year the team has made numerous visits to Kirby Manor and Heritage Gardens, both located in Carrollton.

Volunteers of Operation Kindness take their own pets to visit the residents in the nursing homes. The minute they walk through the door, it's as if the dogs and cats know why they are there. They immediately go up to residents to say "Hi", or maybe its just for the attention and petting they receive! Everyone ends up having a wonderful experience, we hear wonderful stories of past family pets the residents have had over the years, and seeing the love and affection the residents have for the team and their pets.

If you are interested in becoming part of the ACT team, you must be an active volunteer with Operation Kindness. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Tomi Tucker:

Email Tomi or call 972-428-3821

The two-legged and four-legged friends at Operation Kindness thank the nursing homes for the very warm welcome we receive.

The Animal Care Team brings flowers, cookies, cake and other goodies to the nursing home residents to help brighten their day.
