ARL TheraPets certifies a pet and their owner/handler, as a team, to visit nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, hospice facilities, schools & libraries to make a difference in the lives of those they meet. Once a team is certified, the ARL works to place them with a participating local facility where they are needed and will be welcomed.

This program is not just for dogs! Cats, birds, and other small animals can become certified as part of a TheraPets team.
