During a therapy visit, one or more of our handler teams go to a facility like a school, nursing home, or hospital and spend time with the students, residents, or patients at the facility. While larger animals walk on-leash and stay on the floor, smaller animals can be held or can sit next to someone in their bed. Visits can serve many purposes including education, companionship, confidence building, and socialization.

New handler teams are not limited to visiting facilities that are currently on the Atlanta Pet Partner’s visitation list.
