PERRYSBURG, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Perrysburg business is going to the dogs. The number of therapy animals at a local company will soon be expanding.

John Baldwin, a veteran, started his own business called Right at Home. Baldwin and Newton, a therapy dog, visit assisted living communities and nursing homes.

Baldwin says Newton makes a big difference in people's lives.

"It really brightens their day up for a dog to come in and for them to come in and just to pet them," he said. "It just breaks up their loneliness."

Now the therapy side of Right at Home is expanding. A cat and another dog will be added.
