INFO SESSION: Health and Healing Through Animal Assisted Therapy

It is well known that pets can bring joy and enrichment to an adopter’s life, but did you know that animals can also make a major impact on the lives of strangers? Through Animal Assisted Therapy, your pet’s paws and purrs can provide health, healing and comfort to people in need.

The ASPCA is a Community Partner of Pet Partners, a non-profit organization that aims to improve human health through companion animals. More than one million people, from toddlers to seniors, benefit each year from a Pet Partner therapy animal team. If your reliable dog or cat would enjoy visiting hospitals, nursing homes, classrooms, libraries and other facilities, he or she could be a perfect candidate for the Pet Partners program!

To learn more, please join us for a one-hour information session for prospective volunteers. Led by experienced volunteer Susan Tiss with the assistance of Pet Partners staff, this session will cover the process for becoming a registered therapy animal team with your pet.
