What is a Community Partner?
Community Partners are groups of registered Pet Partners therapy animal teams that serve a specific geographic area. They work to increase local participation, recruit new volunteer teams, and educate their community about the powerful impact of the human-animal bond. Belonging to a Community Partner builds camaraderie, collaboration, and a shared sense of purpose, as you work with other like-minded volunteers to establish community connections and expand volunteer opportunities.
Our Community Partners are essential to our organizational mission, and we couldn’t do what we do without them. Currently, Pet Partners has over 70 Community Partners across the U.S. and around the world, and we are growing all the time. Community Partners receive dedicated support, including access to helpful tools, resources, and regularly scheduled listening sessions to highlight and address current challenges or opportunities that exist in the field.
