Pride and Joy: Town and Country’s Pet Therapist has passed away

Her name was Joy and there wasn’t a more fitting name for our beloved Pet Therapist at Town & Country Health and Rehab. She was exactly that, a joy to all who knew her. 

Town & Country Health and Rehab owners, Walter and Libby Ledig, first met this precious creature as an abandoned puppy with a noticeable sweet nature. It didn’t take long to realize that she was much more than just a stray, she was an unexpected gift that would soon bring much joy to the lives of so many. This homeless puppy was adopted by the residents and staff at Town & Country Health and Rehab. She was given the name Joy, a large home, a big family, lots of love and a purpose as she effortlessly became Town & Country’s Pet Therapist. It is unexplainable how Joy learned her job so quickly and it would appear that she was smiling as she pranced herself throughout the facility. She made fast friends with everyone and she loved the residents especially the ones who would sneak her a treat or two. 

Sadly, Town & County Health and Rehab lost Joy on May 20, 2020, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Joy lived her life with purpose and showed her gratitude for being loved every day of her life. She was forever grateful for being rescued when she needed someone to love, but what she probably never realized is that she had actually rescued so many herself. They say a good dog is hard to find but even harder to let them go. Town & Country Health and Rehab will dearly miss their beloved Joy but they feel blessed to have known her and to have called her family.
