Review for Denver Pet Partners, Littleton, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter and I adopted our first Lionhead rabbits a few years ago...and realized that these adorable, sweet little animals could bring joy to so many people. I didn't really know what it would take to get a rabbit certified as a therapy animal until I found Denver Pet Partners. They had never had rabbits go through their program, but were amazing at helping us get to where we are today. Our rabbits went through training and certification, just as all of the dogs do, and now we have four therapy rabbits that visit patients at Craig Hospital on a regular basis.

We have found that rabbits make amazing therapy animals! For patients with limited physical abilities, their small size is perfect for sitting on a lap in a wheelchair or nuzzling against a face in a patient's bed. They have brought smiles to so many faces and we would not be able to provide this wonderful encounter to patients without the help and constant support of Denver Pet Partners.

The emotional experiences that my daughter and I have had together doing animal therapy are also more than words can express. The caring people at Denver Pet Partners have been very welcoming to my daughter and this is a great program for other young adults to be a part of.
