Does your dog stand out from the rest of the pack? Is your feline friend known for their amazing cat-itude? Perhaps your horse is ready to gallop into a new role! We are seeking pets to compete for the title of 2022 Pet Partners Pet of the Year!

This exciting six-week fundraising competition is a perfect way to celebrate your best friend while supporting a great cause! Funds raised by pet candidates (with help from their favorite humans) will support the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program. This amazing program brings unconditional love, happiness, and healing to millions of seniors, patients, veterans, and children in need all around the world each year.

The national title of "Pet Partners Pet of the Year" is awarded to the pet whose fundraising team raises the most funds during the six-week competition. The winner and runner up will be crowned at the close of the competition and awarded wonderful prizes for their efforts.

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
