Pets for People

Our club is for anyone interested in learning more about the human-animal bond and animal behavior and training, registering their pet as a therapy animal, or volunteering to share the joy and health benefits of animals with the local community. All animals on visits must be Registered Therapy Animal Teams through Pet Partners (formerly Delta Society). We will help members train for the evaluations and cover all costs associated with registering. Club members and therapy animals go on visits to local schools, libraries, and assisted living homes. Members, even those without therapy animals, can go on as many or as few visits as they wish. The club also hosts lectures on topics related to the human-animal bond and animal behavior/training.
