We are proud to be a Pet Partners Community Partner and our therapy program is comprised solely of Pet Partners’ tested and registered therapy handlers and animals.

Response to Intervention
Provides specially tailored programs for children and their families who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other special learning needs, or for ongoing tracked programs. Through the use of their senses they can make that critical connection with the animals, including eye contact, speech and touch. This program is under the umbrella of Power of Pets.
Meet & Greet
Meet & Greet the Love Dogs and our Employee Wellness Program brings together therapy animals (several species) to help lessen the stress of the workplace or at other community events, conferences, conventions, etc.
Animal Assisted Crisis Response
Many of our therapy dogs and their handlers are credentialed crisis response teams and can be deployed to any emergency or crisis situation in our community. We spent over 400 hours after the October 1 tragedy and, over the years since, have been there when it was needed most. Often considered “second responders,” our therapy teams are there to comfort and assist our first responders.

Be Cool, Not Cruel
