Comfort Creatures of North Mississippi is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian volunteer group dedicated to serving people in our area by providing Animal Assisted Activities & Therapies (AAA/T) to those in need at local nursing homes, hospitals, schools, mental health centers, and other facilities. Please feel free to look around our website to learn more about who we are and what we do.

If your pet loves to meet new people, has basic obedience skills, and is not aggressive, then becoming a volunteer with Comfort Creatures may be a great opportunity for you. If you’re interested, please review the information on how to join us.
