Help the United Way help Animal Friends!



This September, Animal Friends is partnering with the United Way to bring much needed support to our Pet-Assisted Therapy Program.

If you or your company contributes to the United Way, you can direct important support to Animal Friends. Animal Friends’ Pet-Assisted Therapy Program is recognized by the United Way as a Contributor Choice Agency, which means, if you or your company contributes to the United Way, it’s super easy to direct important support to this vital program.

Animal Friends’ trained volunteers bring the joy and gentle healing of companion animals to individuals in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and hospitals.  The contact encourages communication, socialization, independent movement for the immobile and memory stimulation. Since it’s birth in 2006, Animal Friends’ Pet-Assisted Therapy program has touched over 100,000 lives!

This important program would not exist without your support!
