Volunteer with Therapy Pet Pals of Texas and help us bring the unconditional love of our pets to those who need a little sunshine in their lives! We train volunteers and their calm, friendly, obedient dogs and cats to provide pet therapy to the elderly and ill residents of healthcare facilities in our community.
Our training includes a two hour Qualifying and Training Class and a minimum of three individual training sessions at one of our cooperating facilities. Our volunteers visit their assigned facility at least twice a month and are able to bond with the residents, creating strong, lasting fridendships.
Why not share the love and laughter that your dog or cat gives to you with those in need of the love and laughter that only a sweet furry, pet can give!
