ASPCA ONLINE COMMUNITY EVENT: LIVE ANIMAL ASSISTED THERAPY CHAT
How do I know if my pet qualifies to be a therapy animal?
How do I get my pet started in animal assisted therapy?
Where are therapy animals needed?
Think a cuddle from your dog could light up an elderly person’s face? Maybe your cat’s company will help a child concentrate better on his reading. Whether you’re interested in getting your pet started with animal assisted therapy, or would just like to learn more about it, now is your chance to talk to the ASPCA’s Manager of Animal Assisted Therapy, Greer Griffith. She will be joining the ASPCA for a live chat Friday, January 11—that’s today—from noon to 2:00 P.M. EST. You’ll need to log into the ASPCA Online Community to participate.
P.S. Read up on the ASPCA’s affiliation with the Delta Society, a national organization that aims to improve human health through the assistance of service and therapy animals, and to get information on the ASPCA’s animal assisted therapy classes for you and your dog.
