The Pet Therapy program focuses on the interaction between the client (such as a patient or student) and the certified animal. Socialization and contact with the client is the priority. Visits usually last no more than one hour for the comfort and protection of you and your pet. Visits are made to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, special needs schools, hospitals and other similar venues.
Team members must be available weekdays, mostly during the daytime hours of 9-5. There are occasional evening or weekend visits, but these are not typical. You must commit to a minimum of 2 visits per month in any combination of Pet Therapy, Humane Education and Read to Dog visits.
All visits must be approved by the Pet Therapy Manager Team before you can go to a facility. If you do not have approval for a visit, you will not be covered by our insurance.
