Pet Partners' Therapy Animal Program trains volunteers and screens volunteers and
their pets for visiting animal programs in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, schools and other facilities.
The program was established in 1990 to ensure that "both ends of the leash," people as well as animals, were well-prepared to participate in animal-assisted activity and animal-assisted therapy programs. Pet Partners' Therapy Animal Program is the only national registry that requires volunteer training and screening of animal-handler teams.
Watch the Pet Partners video for an overview of the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program. It features several teams throughout the country visiting various facilities.
