National Therapy Animal Day was created by Pet Partners to recognize all of the exceptional therapy animals who partner with their human companions to bring comfort and healing to those in need. Therapy animals can be dogs, cats, birds, horses, and many other kinds of animals. Therapy animal teams help people of all ages in a variety of different settings including libraries, hospitals, schools, and nursing homes.

* Recognize and honor therapy animals
* Raise awareness and educate the public about the role therapy animals play in enhancing the health and well being of humans
* Honor the thousands of dedicated handlers (the human half of a therapy animal team) who volunteer their time and compassion during visits
|As you can see, Isis thoroughly enjoys the children's reading program at the library!|
Thank you Isis, my sweet girl, for volunteering side by side with me to help others. It's the most rewarding thing I've ever had the pleasure of doing, and I couldn't do it without you! I love you to the moon and back!!
|I like that story, can you read it to me again?!|
