The mission of TheraPet is to promote and perform animal assisted activities and animal assisted therapy in a variety of settings to provide comfort, companionship and positive interactions. To that end, TheraPet recruits, screens, trains and orients volunteers and their animals.
TheraPet is one of the few organizations in the tri-state area to screen small animals, in addition to dogs, for service. Some of our members work with rabbits, cats, or guinea pigs. We also certify junior members, who visit with an adult.
TheraPet is a New Jersey based, all volunteer, nonprofit 501(C) (3) organization.
