We believe that
Therapy animals have a special aptitude for interacting with members of the public and enjoy doing so. They provide affection and comfort to various members of the public, typically in facility settings such as hospitals, retirement homes, and schools. Therapy animal owners volunteer their time to visit with their animal in the community.
Animal-Assisted Activity (AAA)
Animal-assisted activities (AAA) provide social, motivational, educational, and/or recreational benefits for people during interactions.
These activities do not have to be overseen by healthcare professionals and do not work toward particular clinical goals.
AAA often occurs in meet-and-greet sessions in a variety of settings and can be administered in groups or with individuals.
