In addition, we can arrange interviews with our volunteers. Our volunteers visit a wide variety of settings, including (but not limited to) healthcare facilities of many types, senior living, facilities serving veterans, schools and universities, hospices, court and justice system facilities, and in response to crisis events. Pet Partners volunteers are found across the U.S. and in several other countries.

Our Therapy Animal Program registers nine types of animals, the most of any national therapy animal organization:

  • Dogs
  • Cats
  • Equines (including mini horses and donkeys)
  • Rabbits
  • Guinea pigs
  • Domestic rats
  • Birds (parrots and pigeons)
  • Mini pigs
  • Llamas & alpacas

Let us know what works best with your piece and we can connect you with an appropriate team. We can also provide statistics about teams and species in our program.
