National Therapy Animal Day
Did you know that April 30 is National Therapy Animal Day™? 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 and their handlers can be found helping people of all ages in a variety of different settings including hospitals, pediatric care units, schools, and nursing homes.
On National Therapy Animal Day, we:
Recognize the therapy animals who provide comfort and healing to nearly 3 million people per year.
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 members of therapy animal teams) who volunteer their time and compassion during visits.
Treats & Sweets Day
Each year in honor of National Therapy Animal Day™ thousands of bakers from all over the country break out their mixing bowls, put on their aprons and whip up some treats and sweets for their animal and human friends alike. Treats & Sweets Day is the yummiest fundraising event of the year, and is a piece of cake to celebrate! Are you ready to support Pet Partners in the sweetest way? It’s time to flex your flour power. You can host a bake sale, throw a party, or collect donations online. For more information, visit www.treatsandsweetsday.org. Thank you for making the world a whole lot sweeter.
