Therapet Symposium May 4th & 5th 2013 at UT Southwestern in Dallas. More info on the Education/Seminars Page.
Therapet Foundation's mission is to utilize specially trained and certified animals to promote health, hope and healing.
We accomplish this mission by:
- Establishing & communicating standards of practice for use of specially trained animals in the healthcare setting.
- Providing education to health care professionals and facility leaders.
- Educating communities on opportunities and benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy.
- Training, certifying, and assuring competency of human/animal volunteer teams.
Therapet currently has 80+ dogs, 5 cats and a cockatoo working in the East Texas program and has helped establish programs in many states including Montana, Hawaii, New York, Florida, New Mexico, Arizona, Virginia and Louisiana. Check out our videos, book and upcoming seminars.
Therapet Foundation establishes goal oriented therapy programs with these animals. The animals do far more than just visit patients. We are not paid by any facility for our services. We are a 100% donor supported volunteer organization. We depend on these donations to operate our non-profit organization.
