On November 13, 2019, Pet Partners brought therapy animals to Congress with a new event: Meet the Pets with one of the goals being to educate the public about therapy animals, the power of the human-animal bond, and to help ensure that laws that affect standards and access for therapy animals are created with a solid base of information.
More than 300 people on Capitol Hill came by and plan on returning in April 2020 as the event had been a huge success as well as part of celebrating National Therapy Animal Day on April 30. They even hope to be able to bring some of their other therapy animal species and show that it’s not only dogs who can provide the positive effects of animal-assisted interventions. ~Pet Partners~
