Therapy Animal Web Pages & Trading Cards
|Therapy Animal Teams; Have you created your pet(s)' webpage and ordered trading cards yet? It's a delightful way to share stories about your pet and create greater awareness about the benefits of animal-assisted interactions! Children and patients love receiving the cards during visits as a way to remember their new friends.
The webpage that you create will not only showcase your therapy animal, but will allow those visiting the page a convenient way to donate to Pet Partners and support our programs. We provide templates and step-by-step instructions that make creating a personalized page for your pet a breeze!
For more information, including pricing, click here. Note: You must be logged in as a registered Pet Partners volunteer to access the page.
