ANIMALS 4 THERAPY
A NON-PROFIT 501(c)(3) ORGANIZATION

For Facilities

         

    If you’re reading this, you’re obviously the type of person who recognizes the benefits of therapy animals for your clients, staff, students, etc. You probably already know that animals can assess situations in the blink of an eye, while we – human beings limited by our primitive senses – will take several minutes. Therapy animals can offer even more: more patience, more tolerance, and usually a lot more affection! As handlers, we learn to listen to them, to trust their judgment. Our partners – as we call them – are never forced to work: they do what they do because they want to. They call the shots. Their obedience skills are exceptionally reliable, their manners, often impeccable.

    So now you really want therapy teams to work at your facility! Great! Whether your program is called animal-assisted therapy, pet therapy, therapy animals, or zootherapy, they all have the same goal: touching lives, even for a second. Indeed, during that brief impromptu meeting, therapy animal teams often manage to offer a “mental escape” to the client, almost like a mini-vacation from life’s hardships.

Our therapy animal teams work at many facilities. Here are some examples (more facilities/organizations are added on a regular basis and might not appear on this list).
