Reading to dogs? Absolutely. A therapy animal visit is an incentive, a motivational tool, and a non-judgmental listener… all in one. Therapy animals can breathe new life into lesson plans, classroom activities, and library reading programs with the exciting presence of a highly qualified volunteer and their animal. This publication is a part of the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program, providing the most highly credentialed volunteers in the field.
Pet Partners’ Therapy Animal Program represents the best that the field of animal-assisted interventions has to offer. Volunteers in the Therapy Animal Program interact with a wide variety of clients including veterans with PTSD, seniors living with Alzheimer’s, students with literacy challenges, patients in recovery, people with intellectual disabilities, and those approaching end of life. We believe that the human-animal bond is a mutually beneficial relationship that improves the physical, social, and emotional lives of those we serve. We are motivated by connection, compassion, and a commitment to sharing this meaningful bond with everyone who can benefit from time spent with an animal.
