To provide animal assisted activity and animal assisted therapy for the mental and psychological healing of persons in health care organizations and educational programs. Through interaction between animals and people, an increased positive psycho-social sense of well being will be provided through sharing, caring and compassion.
Delta Society is a not-for-profit organization supported by tax deductible contributions. It was started in 1977 to promote animals helping people to improve their health, independence, and quality of life. Their mission is to promote mutually beneficial relationships with animals to improve people's health, independence, and quality of life. Their vision is a world in which people are healthier and happier because of companion, therapy and service animals who share their everyday lives. A link to their website is at the top of this page.
K-9's for Compassion is a Delta Society Pet Partners Program, based after RX: Dog Love in Akron, Ohio.
Through careful evaluations of animal/handler teams by Delta Society Licensed Animal Evaluators, veterinary screening, and a Team Training Course, we can ensure that people and animals are prepared to go into hospitals, rehabilitation centers, prisons, schools, and nursing homes.
Carefully screened animals visit at area Nursing Homes, Hospitals, and give school presentations to teach about the importance of volunteering and giving back to the community, bite prevention, and careers with animals. We also do a lot of civic speaking to area groups.
