Humane Hearts

Humane Hearts therapy animals are owned by people who want to volunteer to enrich the lives of special groups within our community. The role of a therapy animal is to work as a team with their handler to provide emotional and physical support to all people. Volunteering with a Humane Hearts Therapy Pet allows the pet to provide unconditional love to people of all ages.
The Humane Hearts Pet Therapy Team is proud of our 60 volunteer teams!

Feedback from a school counselor: “Please let the team know that some of our special ed friends that communicate very little have started looking for the dogs and actually articulating “doggy” – this is huge!!!!!! Additionally, we have some general education friends that have indicated “I love the days when Ruger comes – it makes me want to get up and come to school”
