Honoring Our Therapy Animals

Our therapy animal teams serve nationwide. Over a lifetime, they devote many hours, sharing their gentle spirits and friendly hearts with people in need. Whether visiting children in a classroom or spending time with the elderly in a residential care facility, their impact makes all the difference in a client’s life. This page honors their many contributions to communities in all fifty states.
