Visiting Pets

Visiting Pets

Visiting pets are encouraged at Teck Pioneer Residence. Pets provide our residents with opportunities to give and receive affection, reminisce and provide enjoyable entertainment. They are also beneficial to withdrawn or isolated residents to express happiness and joy.

 

We ask that your visiting pet:

  • Be clean and well-groomed
  • Free from disease
  • Have written evidence of immunization status and/or veterinarian's health report
  • Must be on a leash or alternate restraint system at all times
  • Consideration must be given to those residents that do not wish to be visited by pets
  • Kitchen, servery, dining room, and other food preparation, food storage and laundry areas are restricted to pets

 

Contact the Life Enrichment Manager if you are interested in visiting with your pet on a regular basis at 705-567-3257 Ext. 373
