Therapy Animals of Southern Arizona

Therapy Animals of Southern Arizona is an all-volunteer group of Pet Partners Therapy Animal Teams, and those who support the teams, who volunteer in Tuscon and the greater Southern Arizona area. We are also a Community Partner of the national non-profit Pet Partners. After completing training and intensive evaluation, we take our pets to visit patients at local hospitals, hospices, and assisted living centers. We help children learn to read at libraries and schools, and help people in other places where pets traditionally are not allowed such as domestic violence shelters and juvenile detention centers.
