If you are interested in the possibility of launching a program at your facility (Utah only), please fill out the Facility Request Form. 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, or for any other inquiries, please email email@example.com.
We make classroom presentations on Dog Safety or Responsible Pet Care. Please contact Lilly at 801-272-3439 or Lilly@TherapyAnimals.org if you would like to have our animals come to your class.
