If you are interested in the possibility of launching a program at your facility (Utah only), please fill out the Facility Request Form.doc. We will send your request out to our therapy teams as well as add your facility to our online waiting list. Please understand, due to the high demand for animal-assisted therapy programs and because our team associates are volunteering, it can take a long time (if at all) to start a program. If your request is older than 1 year before a team is found, you will need to resubmit this form. If you have any questions about this, please email For all other inquires, please contact
