Our certified Emotional support animal therapy family provides our children with companionship as well as physical and emotional health benefits.
The goal of Animal Assisted Emotional Therapy is to improve a client's social, emotional, and/ or cognitive functioning in addition to building self esteem and confidence. Advocates state that animals can also be useful for educational and motivational effectiveness in participants. Studies have proven that a care giver who is accompanied by a pet may be perceived as being less threatening, increasing the rapport between client and care giver. Our Animal family members used in therapy and emotional support include domesticated pets and farm animals.
