Although we are always looking for more trained Therapets, you don’t have to have an animal in the program - or at all - to work with us.
We need people to help in many areas: Taking Photos or Videos; Helping with Visitations at Hospitals; Being our Mascot "Healer"; Helping with Secretarial Duties; Fundraising; Grant Writing; Talking about Therapet at Community Events; and/or Helping us with Technology and Social Media. We also need more trained Therapets to visit hospitals, schools, community events, etc. Do you have a dog, cat or bird who loves people? Volunteer with Therapet! Help others while spending quality time with your pet! Our next volunteer orientation session is from 2 - 4 pm on Saturday, February 18th at the Therapet office (225 E Amherst, Ste. 200 in Tyler). Please call 903-535-2125 to register to attend. We hope to see you soon!
