Since 2003, I have served as one of the escorts for Therapet as they visit our patients and family members of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler . I have seen countless patients respond in such a positive way to the attention and care of these wonderful animals and their owners - smiles when there were tears, relief when there was pain, comfort when there was loneliness. Almost equally as special is the joy they provide to our staff of caregivers in an otherwise very stressful day. What makes this pet therapy organization different from so many others is the degree of professionalism and high standards they set for themselves. In all these years, we have not had one single negative incident. Therapet is such a respected organization here, they are allowed to visit patients in our Intensive Care Unit. I can't think of another non-profit organization that I respect more than I do Therapet.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their visits each year to our Texas Asthma Camp for Kids. Many of our children don't get the opportunity to spend time with dogs or horses becasue of their allergies. With Therapet, we teach them how to interact with the animals and how to respect them.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing all of the different animals - the faces of our patients with the Therapets and how well behaved they are in a hospital environment.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Outstanding individuals. Owners spend a year training their pets to participate in Therapet. Each animal must be bathed & brushed, teeth & ears cleaned, and nails clipped within 24 hours of a visit. They must be committed to participate & they are.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand even further beyond our region in helping others to set up programs life Therapet. Shari has published a book and created a video on a shoestring to help get other organizations off the ground. She is a recognized expert in this field.
