Abstract

Pets Helping People is a not-for-profit  501(c) 3 organization established in 1998 on the premise that dogs, through their unconditional love and acceptance and acute senses, when paired with a compassionate human can be a remarkable source of companionship, inspiration, motivation and support to the healing and learning processes.  We offer unmatched training, testing and support to individuals who want to share the love they have for their dog with others through the practice of animal assisted interventions(AAI).  We partner with facilities and organizations who want to offer the healing benefits of the human-animal bond with their clients by assisting with program development and team placement.  We provide customized interactive educational presentations to many schools, community groups, residential facilities, and employers expanding their understanding of and appreciation for the diverse benefits of AAI.
