Have you ever considered volunteering as a therapy animal team? Pet Partners invites prospective volunteers to attend free, one-hour informational webinars (online interactive presentations) to learn about our Therapy Animal Program. Led by experienced volunteers with the assistance of Pet Partners staff, these sessions will cover the process for becoming a registered therapy animal team with your pet.
If you’re not able to attend an upcoming live session, you can watch a recorded version of a previous session by clicking the Play button for “Volunteering with Your Pet” at the bottom of this page.
As part of our commitment to education and engagement, Pet Partners offers a variety of webinars for volunteers, pet owners, and the general public. Session registration is generally available on our website 4-6 weeks in advance of the event. Webinars feature live presentations with question/answer opportunities.
Join Pet Partners team evaluator Elizabeth Lynch, DVM, and Senior Evaluator/Instructor Support Specialist Lisa Zeiner for an in-depth discussion about the importance of building trust, preventing burnout, and using de-escalation techniques during visits. Gain a deeper understanding of how your care and concern for your animal’s well-being informs client interactions and builds trust with victims of trauma.
Have you ever been asked to represent Pet Partners for a local news segment or newspaper article? Join Pet Partners Communications & Outreach Coordinator Elisabeth Van Every for a discussion about the guidelines for interacting with the media while on a Pet Partners visit, including privacy and HIPAA considerations, policies on photography and social media, and how to best present yourself as a Pet Partners volunteer. This webinar is the first in our AACR Continuing Education series.
