Animal Assisted Activities

This would be what most of our visits are considered.  These kinds of interactions might be at a hospital, assisted living facility, nursing home, school, etc.  We meet and greet people with our Pet Partners, allowing clients to brush, pet and cuddle the pets.

 This type of visit allows people to interact with our pets in a less structured therapy session..

​​​Animal Assisted Therapy

This is a more structured session.  Specific goals for the visit are set in order to promote improvement in a person’s physical, social, emotional, and/or cognitive functions.  Typically, a trained professional guides the therapy team during AAT.

 


If you would like one of our therapy teams to visit your facility, school, hospital, etc, please contact us. 

We will set up an initial tour of your location to see if AAA/AAT is a good match for your location. 

 If you are a professional and you feel a pet therapy team would be appropriate in
helping you reach your goals, please contact us. 

Ther owner/pet therapy teams work on a volunteer basis and can consist of
miniature horses, dogs, cats, rabbits etc.
