Description

Therapy Pet Pals of Texas (TPPT) is a 501 (c) (3), tax-exempt organization providing pet therapy to the elderly and ill institutionalized members of our community. TPPT was founded in 1984 and serves in 90 healthcare facilities, of which 85% are nursing homes. Our volunteers and their calm, friendly, obedient dogs/cats have served in nursing homes continuously for the past 32 years. From very humble "grassroots" beginnings in 1984, we have grown to over 200 trained volunteers, with a high demand for more Pet Pal Programs throughout our Austin/Central Texas service area, as well as our The Woodlands/Houston area chapter. No fee or service charge has ever been required for out Pet Pal programs; our services are free to all healthcare facilities/institutions in need of pet therapy.
