PAHS Therapy Paws

The Palo Alto Humane Society’s newest program PAHS Therapy Paws, connects our team of therapy dogs with corporate companies, local businesses, start-ups, local colleges, universities and senior residences, and provides them with a one-in-a-kind de-stress experience.

Attendees will also learn more about Palo Alto Humane Society (PAHS)—our mission and our different programs in education and community outreach as well as in veterinary intervention.

Our animal ambassadors—all gentle certified therapy dogs and people-friendly pets—offer the special kind of therapy that only a sensitive, loving animal can provide. It’s been shown that interacting with animals helps people feel less lonely, disheartened, or anxious and alleviates stress, producing an overall feeling of wellbeing.
