Pet Therapy Not Just For Dogs Anymore: Animal Species And The Role They Play Improving Our Lives
Pet therapy showcases the joy animals bring to our lives and the endless ways they improve it. But the pet therapy of yesterday is no longer.
Pet Partners (formerly The Delta Society) now registers nine different species for certification. Now besides dogs, certified pet therapy pets include cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, llamas and alpacas, birds, pigs and rats. And each one brings something new to the party.
Pet Partners was founded in 1977 and has certified 50,000 teams since foundation, performing more than 1 million visits to people in need.
