It is the mission of Atlanta Pet Partner to provide registered Pet Partners® teams at no-cost to hospitals, assisted-living facilities, hospice, physical and occupational therapy centers, schools, libraries, certified therapist-rehab programs, mental health programs, physiologist, retirement homes, community health centers, rehab programs, catastrophic community events and crimes, disaster relief and bereavement services to bring peace and hope, joy, comfort, education and inspiration to those in need.
We serve patients and families that are going through age and/or mental health or health related crisis. Through our pets unconditional love and acceptance, they bring smiles to adults and children's faces.
They bring affection to lonely people in nursing homes, and in some cases, the will to re-engage in life and interact with those around them and the world beyound
All three types of animal interactions can help lower blood pressure, reduce stress and anxiety, temporarily reduce pain, motivate patients in physical therapy, help students re-engage and read better and inspire children to learn and so much more.
