Abstract

WAGS (Wonderful Animals Giving Support) Pet Therapy of Kentucky, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer organization based in Louisville since 1999. WAGS members believe in the special – often healing – bond between people and animals. The mission of WAGS is to bring people and pets together for companionship and therapy.

To accomplish this goal, WAGS Ambassador teams have volunteered thousands of hours in over 40 facilities in the Kentuckiana area providing animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy. Participation in visitation presents 150 WAGS members with a unique opportunity to give back to the community and share their wonderful, loving pets with those in need.
