Hero and Maisy are registered with Pet Partners to do Animal Assisted Activities/Therapy.
Animal Assisted activities include visiting and greeting people. Some examples are visiting a retirement community, a cancer treatment center, or school. While you can set a routine, these events are more spontaneous and can involve many different individuals.
Animal Assisted Therapy is a session that is developed around a specific patient with set treatment goals. Each session is documented for progress. The visiting schedule for these patients is regular and consistent. Patients who have developmental, emotional, social, or physical challenges can benefit greatly from animal assisted therapy.
You may request a visit from Hero or Maisy, or check out his shop for more helpful information and services
