Pet therapy pets need to know basic obedience, be good in crowds, with kids, other dogs, loud noises- over all be very well rounded and calm in nature. We are looking for people that have open schedules who can take their pets to senior facilities and hospitals. The Pet Therapy Team also partners with our Humane Education Team and visits schools, scout troops and other kids programs.
