Thank you for your interest in Pets and Friends’ events!
There are primarily two types of pet therapy events. These are ad hoc requests are opposed to scheduled routine pet therapy visits to care homes, hospitals, hospices and other facilities.
- Community Pet Therapy Visits are those requested by colleges or universities, secondary schools, outreach or community programs, health care staff and first responder units and others that require support infrequently in the year or as a need arises.
- Employee Wellness Corporate Sponsored Events are those requested by companies that would like to provide pet therapy visits as part of their employee wellness program. Pets and Friends respectfully accepts donations or sponsorship funds for these visits to continue our mission. We thank our corporate partners for recognizing the healing power of a pet therapy visit and for including Pets and Friends in their staff wellness programs.
Note: The request process is the same for both types of events. We require a minimum of 6 weeks’ notice for event requests and all requests must be approved by Pets and Friends based on whether the event is in line with our our overall purpose: Pets and Friends is a registered charity that provides and promotes the healing comfort and companionship of animals through pet therapy visitations. Our ability to fulfill your request is based on the availability and interest of our volunteers. The request for volunteers occurs after all event details have been confirmed.
If you have any questions about scheduling an event or are simply inquiring about hosting an event but do not yet have all of the details, please contact us.
