Can you imagine never being able to touch or see a pet again? It happens and you can make a difference!.

Do you have a calm, friendly dog or cat? Are you interested in visiting local hospitals, care facilities, schools, libraries or other venues?

New England Pet Partners evolved in 2007 as a non-profit 501c.3 organization dedicated to raising awareness about the benefits that pets can have on human health and well-being.

As a Community Pet Partner, we expanded the therapeutic role with training by offering licensed team evaluations to potential Pet Partner Registered Therapy Teams.

Registered teams participate in private practice, physical and occupational therapy, mental health/wellness, hospitals, schools, universities and more ...

Teams help children improve their reading skills through read with me, when appropriate.  

We do not deploy teams. You can post requests at NEPP’s Facebook Team Forum page.
