Therapy Partners are highly trained volunteers who work with their animal partners to provide Animal Assisted Therapy. Since 1994, PAW therapy teams have visited adult patients in Huntsville Hospitalís Behavioral Health Unit and young patients of Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children. Handlers and their therapy partners are part of the treatment team whose goal is to work with patients to achieve optimum health - emotional, social, physical or cognitive. As this work is highly specialized, volunteers and their companion animals are carefully trained and screened by Therapy Partners, Inc. Learn more about this program.
