Bake a Difference for Therapy Animals

Pet Partners

  • 6 people are interested

Join us this April as we bake a difference in honor of National Therapy Animal Day! We are looking for people who are passionate about animals and want to register as bakers for the event to spread the word and raise funds for Pet Partners!

Treats & Sweets Day was created by Pet Partners to recognize our thousands of volunteer therapy animal teams that brighten the lives of people all over the country. This year, we whipped up some wonderful virtual and social distancing options to make sure everyone stays safe while continuing to support the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program.

There are tons of great ideas, tools, and resources available when you set up your personal fundraising page at treatsandsweetsday.org. Bakers even have Facebook fundraising and text-to-donate options, so asking for donations is even easier than before! When you register to bake with us, you’ll receive a free start-up kit in the mail with stickers to decorate your baked goods, guidelines for socially distanced events, a poster to spread the word, and table signs. Register today-together, we can make success from scratch!

Mission Statement

Pet Partners improves human health and well-being through the human-animal bond. We achieve this by educating, registering, and supporting therapy animal teams who make visits across the United States. Therapy animal teams visit hospital patients, schoolchildren, nursing home residents, and a wide variety of clients.

Description

Pet Partners is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people throughout the world become healthier and happier by incorporating therapy, service and companion animals into their lives. Numerous scientific research studies have proven that interactions with animals:

  • Reduce people's blood pressure
  • Lower anxiety and stress levels
  • Stimulate the release of endorphins, which help people feel good, which is especially important for those feeling isolated or depressed
  • Encourage exercise
  • Lead to more independent and fulfilling lives
  • Increase a sense of community
