Mission: New England Pet Partner Teams are bringing people and pets together to enhance well-being and education with pet-assisted therapy and canine-assisted learning.
Results: Developing fund-raising ideas every year like our annual pet wellness festival to raise money for expenses. Additionally, we want to increase our ability to help other pet therapy teams when they are in need (i.e. older adults / pets, veterinary expenses, free team evaluations for members).
Target demographics: Hospitals, rehabs, nursing and assisted living, hospice, prison, schools, libraries and private practice / health care.
Direct beneficiaries per year: Patients, clients, pets, healthy professionals and organizations in the community. We offer teams with integrity who are conintually supported and educated by our volunteers.
Programs: Registered Visiting Pet Programs, Reading Education Assistance Dogs and/or Canine-Assisted Learning, Program Development Assistance, Team Evaluations and Renewals.
