Enhancing Well-Being and Education with Pet Assisted Therapy


Board of Directors / Advisors / Friends of NEPP


NEPP follows a Community-Relationship Driven Business Model – Governing for What Matters. Our vision is bringing people and pets together to enhance well-being and education with pet assisted therapy in the community. The Board’s work centers around raising awareness about the benefits of Pet Assisted Therapy and providing resources to train qualified visiting teams with Pet Partners. Our annual plan/forecast aims at program development for organizations (individuals) wanting to implement pet assisted therapy into activities and therapeutic interventions. To drive our visionary goals, NEPP guides the Board of Directors and registered teams with professionalism, intention, integrity and accountability. Our approach is to engage with, and generate relationships between teams and facilities. We do not deploy teams. See Facility/Team Connection Form. As a non-profit, we need sponsors who value and support our cause.

If you are interested in a Board Director’s position with NEPP, contact Maureen Ross or Mary Blake.
