JOIN AND BECOME A THERAPY TEAM MEMBER

Therapy animals, usually dogs and cats, and their owners help people in all kinds of settings – hospitals, residential facilities, schools, libraries, rehab facilities, juvenile detention centers, shelters, and other types of community facilities. Are you interested in volunteering as a therapy team? Is your animal a “people person”? Does your best friend greet you and others with a happy wag of the tail or an interested look or sniff? Are you and your well-behaved pet willing to make a regular commitment, at least once a month, to visit a facility that fits you in terms of your schedule, location, and type of setting. Then, you’re much more than just a “mom” or a “dad” to a companion animal. You’re just the type of person we’re looking for. Please explore our website to learn more about our organization, frequently asked questions, and additional details of how to become an Animal Therapy Team.

Some of our more experienced teams also serve in our CARE Program  providing Crisis Animal Response support to communities throughout Texas who are experiencing disasters and crises of various types. These teams are provided with additional training (FEMA, Human and Animal First Aid, CPR and crisis response techniques) as well as travel support. 

New Therapy Team Membership cost is $60.00

This fee includes one year annual membership, team training class for the individual, and a therapy team evaluation. Annual membership fee is due every year and an evaluation fee is due every other year.
