Change Lives with Your Pet

Some people were born to be doctors, lawyers, or rock stars, and some animals were born to be therapy animals—comforting strangers, building community, and bringing joy to all they visit. Give the animals in your life the opportunity to share their unconditional love with the people who need it most.

Diversity Lies at the Heart of Everything We Do

The human-animal bond is a universal connection that transcends boundaries. It knows no race or identity, and is not bound by socioeconomic background, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. We are more alike than we are different, and at Pet Partners, our approach is based on inclusion. We believe therapy animal interactions can unite. Every individual is worthy of love, respect, dignity, and compassion, and it is our goal to provide access to therapy animal teams that bring heartfelt emotional connection to the communities we serve.
