Who We Are: We are a Community Partner of the national Pet Partners organization, and the majority of our teams serve the greater Portland, OR / Vancouver, WA area. Howeve, our membership spans north to Bellingham, WA, south to Salem, OR, west to Cannon Beach and Rockaway Beach, OR, and east to Grangeville, ID.
What We Do: Our mission is to enrich people's lives and promote health and happiness through positive human-animal interactions, with a primary goal of increasing the number of therapy animal teams volunteering in our communities.
Where We Visit: Our therapy animal teams visit a wide variety of facilities, including schools, libraries, retirement homes, assisted living homes, nursing homes, hospitals, and hospices. We even comfort children in dental offices.
By participating in Treats & Sweets Day for Pet Partners, our team is raising awareness and funds to bring the healing power of animals to many people across the country and in our communities.
By supporting our Treats & Sweets Day efforts, you will be helping Pet Partners to train and register thousands of therapy animal teams who make over three million life-enhancing visits each year. Thank you for making the world a whole lot sweeter.
This April, in honor of National Therapy Animal Day™, we are joining thousands of bakers from all over the country who are breaking out our mixing bowls, and whipping up some treats and sweets for our animal and human friends alike. Treats & Sweets Day is the yummiest fundraising event of the year! We are taking our knack for baking and putting it to good use to support Pet Partners, and we need your help!
