pet therapy policies
Author Last Post
Hi Raluca,
Here at Park Nicollet we required that our pet teams be registered with Pet Partners. I know other organizations allow Pet Partners or TDI.

When our program started many years ago, we had a lead volunteer participate in the creation of the policies. She had been involved in the pet therapy community for some years and had a lot of insight that we didn't. The group that came together included that volunteer, staff from Volunteer Services, staff from infection prevention, staff from safety and security and more - it was definitely a team effort.

Hi Everyone,
I am looking for what others are doing as far as Pet Therapy.  Do your volunteers and their pets have to be certified therapy animals?  do you allow volunteers to bring in their pets? What policies and procedures do you use for pet therapy?
