About

Do you enjoy spending time with your pet? Does your pet enjoy spending time with new people? We would love to help you become a registered Therapy Team with KPETS - Keystone Pet Enhanced Therapy Services.

Mission: KPETS provides a network of dependable registered pet therapy teams whose passion is Touching Lives & Warming Hearts by providing comfort, encouragement and rehabilitation through human/animal interaction.

KPETS is a local 501c3 nonprofit formed solely to promote the benefits of the animal/human bond. With over 300 registered teams, we are visiting over 200 facilities/organizations in 10 local counties: In schools, libraries, hospitals, hospices, long-term-care facilities. Working with at-risk teens, children with Autism, physical, occupational, speech and cognitive therapies! The possibilities are endless!

It's a win-win-win. The pet gets the attention they love, we get to show-off our furry friends AND we get to serve our communities too!

Once registered as a therapy team, teams are then have covered by liability insurance. KPETS will help volunteers as much or as little as they like, to find to opportunities to visit in the various facilities or organizations whose clientele may enjoy the interaction with our pets.

In addition to visiting, KPETS also does educational and/or entertainment presentations for the community. Promoting pet therapy so that many others may benefit from the human/animal bond is our vision. www.kpets.org
