Abstract

Chimo Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) is an innovative not-for-profit initiative that assists in the development, planning, and implementation of AAT at a wide variety of facilities.

At Chimo AAT, we strive to bring those same benefits to all clients. We train all interested therapists and employ means of finding suitable animals to work with them, such as certified volunteer animals.

At Chimo AAT we:
•Recruit and certify therapy animals including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and mini-horses
•Recruit and train volunteers with qualified animals
•Train a wide variety of therapists to use animals to help their clients
•Facilitate ongoing Animal Assisted Therapy programs in our community
•Provide services to assist new facilities in creating and sustaining their own Animal-Assisted Therapy programs
