Allow people to benefit from the healing power of animals!
Imagine you're in the hospital, battling disease. Or you're a veteran, returning from war and fighting Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Imagine you're a child with a learning disability, afraid to read in front of your class, or you're in a nursing home lonely and missing your family. Sign PetitionSign Petition
The one thing that could ease the stress, pain, isolation and fear of all of these people? A therapy animal. Whether it's a dog, a cat, or any other species of registered therapy animal, therapy animals bring real healing and comfort to people in need.
But sometimes, red tape and misunderstandings stop them from touching the lives of the people who need them.
Despite the incredible, research-based benefits of animal-assisted therapy, some hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and other facilities nationwide are denying people access to the therapy animals they so desperately need.
These out-of-date policies stem from a complete misunderstanding of therapy animals. The reality is, qualified therapy animals go through a strict registration process that ensures they are physically and behaviorally fit to conduct therapy work.
Pet Partners is the leading national organization that registers therapy animal teams, conducts critical training, supports research, and is committed to expanding the reach of therapy animals where it's needed most.
Join us in our fight today to bring therapy animals into more facilities nationwide to help veterans, students, and others in need.
