We are a rehabilitation center and nonprofit dedicated to children and adolescents with special physical and mental needs.
Angels on four legs began its activity over twenty-three years ago as an idea of ​​social work aimed at children with mild and chronic disabilities. This institution devoted its first 5 years to quantifying the number of children who would benefit from this project and study the appropriate types of conditions for animal therapy, such as: autism, Down syndrome, mental disabilities of any kind, physical disabilities, sensory disabilities, and others.
