Hounds for the Homebound, Group 6
Homebound senior citizens can become lonely in their everyday lives. This issue is very important because 40.3 million citizens are seniors. Therapy animals can lower blood pressure, reduce stress, increase activity, and help with depression. We would like to bring therapy animals to the homes of these people and let them enjoy their time with the animals. In return the animals can be loved on by human beings. This is our cause!

Other Ways to Take Action
We learned that....
"We can be advocates for the elderly, and we can make them happy."
"There are a lot of homebound elderly and we didn’t know there were so many."
"Animals can really help people."
"Dogs benefit the elderly."
"Dogs and cats can really change our community. By giving our grandparents dogs/cats we can see them be very happy"
"We can help seniors."
"A citizen is a person in a group that helps keep the group together"
"A team of fifth and sixth graders who are dedicated to a cause can be change makers in their community!"
The Terrific Ten!
