PetPals is a 23 year old ministry of Northland Church designed to serve residents and staff in 6 assisted living facilities and nursing homes. We provide comfort and smiles with our dogs, cats, and volunteers. As volunteers, the folks at the end of the leash, we serve as disciples of Christ by actively listening to residents' stories and asking questions of these wise, chronologically-gifted people.

We created Pen Pals to continue serving during the pandemic since we cannot take normal visits inside the facilities. Pen Pals write letters, send cards and photos, share favorite Bible verses, and truly provide a bright spot for some very lonely people. Become a Pen Pal and you’ll be blessed by the process of connecting. Just send a note to Bob Wright at the email included here and say yes.
