NATIONAL THERAPY ANIMAL DAY™ / TREATS & SWEETS DAY
Monday May 18, 2015 is the First Annual National Therapy Animal Day created by Pet Partners to honor all of the exceptional therapy animal teams that bring joy and comfort to people in need. By promoting the event we will raise awareness and educate the public about the role therapy animals play in enhancing the health and well-being of people.
In honor of National Therapy Animal Day, thousands of bakers will be breaking out their mixing bowls and whipping up some treats and sweets. Your participation in this year's Treats & Sweets Day will support Pet Partners in training and registering thousands of therapy animal teams who make over a million life-enhancing visits each year.
