Established in 2005, Pet Partners® of Syracuse is a registered Community Partner of Pet Partners® , located in Bellevue, Washington. We are a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization that helps people live healthier and happier lives through the use of therapy animals. This is done by trained volunteers who have been screened along with their pets to provide Animal Assisted Activities(AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) in a variety of settings. We are not a service dog organization. Pet Partners® national does have a national service dog resource center available on its website -- www.petpartners.org . We receive no government funding and rely on individuals, foundations, and corporations for financial support.
Most of our members are in the greater Syracuse area although, as registered Pet Partners®, we have the ability to set up visitations wherever we find the need - nationwide. We visit health care facilities, schools, libraries -- just about anywhere anyone needs the emotional support and health benefits of a registered Therapy Animal® team. Some of our teams are also registered with R.E.A.D.® (Reading Education Assistance Dogs®) - a program developed by Intermountain Therapy Animals of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Pet Partners® of Syracuse, Inc. is a dedicated group of individuals and registered Therapy Animal Teams committed to promoting the enrichment and enhancement of lives through the human-animal bond. This is accomplished through Animal-Assisted Activities and Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAA/AAT) designed to meet the needs of individuals of all ages and abilities.
