Alliance of Therapy Dogs is a national organization with its corporate office located in Cheyenne, WY. ATD was incorporated in the year 1990. Currently we have 12,000+ handler/dog teams in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Territories. It is a goal of ATD to provide registration, support, and insurance for members who are involved in volunteer animal assisted activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, visits to hospitals, special needs centers, schools, and nursing homes. Our objective is to form a network of caring individuals who are willing to share their special animals in order to bring happiness and cheer to people, young and old alike.
