Honoring Our Therapy Animals

Our therapy animal teams serve nationwide and around the world. They devote many hours to their service, sharing their empathetic spirits and friendly hearts with people in need. These dedicated volunteers affect so many lives, whether visiting children in a classroom, supporting staff and patients at a healthcare facility, comforting people after a crisis, or spending time with seniors in a residential care facility, just a few of the locations where therapy animal teams are found. Their impact makes a major difference in a client’s life. This page honors their many contributions to communities where they visit.
