The Palo Alto Humane’s newest program, 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.
Therapy Paws also visits classrooms with their well-behaved and child-friendly companion dogs or trained therapy or service animals to connect with young people. Topics of discussion include the responsibility of people to animals, animal care, and how animals work in and help the community. Teams are also available to visit care facilities and community organizations.
Our animal ambassadors—all gentle certified therapy dogs and people-friendly pets—offer the special 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 well-being.
Attendees will also learn more about Palo Alto Humane—our mission and our different programs in education and community outreach as well as in veterinary intervention.
