Abstract

Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati is an all-volunteer group of over 200 volunteer Therapy Teams that provide Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) to clients throughout the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky metro area. We are proud to be a Community Partner with Pet Partners® (formerly known as the Delta Society®) organization.

Our group actively promotes the benefits of the human-animal connection through community involvement, close cooperation with client facilities, and ongoing training, evaluation and mentorship opportunities for our members. 
Many of our members also volunteer in the Pages 'N Paws reading program at several local schools, libraries and bookstores.

We are also available for public or private speaking engagements and to assist client facilities in establishing a pet therapy program and a training program for their staff and volunteers.
