Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

What is Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT)?

Animal-Assisted Therapy is the interaction of people and domesticated pets in a positive way when a person shares the love and companionship of their pet with someone who is not able to have a pet in their situation.

Animal Assisted Intervention is comprised of two types of visitations: a therapeutic visit, in which a specific goal(s) is established within a treatment plan, which is moderated by a medical professional; or an activity visitation in which the pets sole purpose is to interact with the person to enhance their quality of life.

Animal Assisted Therapy, also known as pet therapy,  is a person and their domesticated pet (in this case, dogs), that have successfully completed a certain level of training and assessment to deliver pet mediated services within their community.
