"GOOD DOGS START WITH GOOD OWNERS"
Atlanta Pet Partners helps to carry out Pet Partners® mission by providing full-service healthcare assistance programs to the public in which individuals can experience, train and register their animals to be nationally registered Animal-Assisted Therapy Teams. We aim to serve those in need without cost.

AAA and AAT visitations enrich the lives of those we visit and improves their human health overall. It also brings about a greater community of acceptance of all animal breads. Take a look at what we do.
