Therapy Dogs are Big Heroes @ Marshall Public Library

 

Local residents Mike and Phyllis Pence have anything but ordinary pets. Their pets’ open doors of kindness and understanding for children in the Marshall community by offering meaningful early literacy interactions at Marshall Public Library. Ernest T. and Clyde are both Golden Retrievers certified thru Alliance of Therapy Dogs and offer one-on-one support to children and their families who struggle with emotional and/or physical conditions. Monthly at the Library these dogs visit, console, and engage families in need with book readings and therapeutic interactions. Eight-year-old Earnest T, who was rescued at just 4 ½ months, has been serving as a therapy dog at the library for nearly 8 years. Clyde, who turns 6 in April, has been certified for 4 years and was also discovered thru the Rescue Me Clifford group. He was rescued from a puppy mill when he was just shy of 2 years old.

Despite their turbulent beginnings, these dogs have managed to provide natural empathy for a variety of children in need within the Marshall community. Perhaps it is because of their difficult beginnings, these two dogs have been able to provide empathetic interactions to children who have endured stressful and/or traumatic situations.

Recently, the Pence’s acquired miniature ponies Raven and Lady who are not certified therapy ponies, but are working on getting their certifications soon. They too were both rescued and came from a mini rescue farm in Sesser, Illinois. Raven is a 15-year-old 30 ½” appaloosa and Lady is a 22-year-old 33 ½” pinto palomino.

If you or someone you know is struggling with a severe mental or physical condition and wish to utilize this free, once-a-month program, please call the library at 217-826-2535 and ask for the Director.
