More about our Organization:
Throughout the year Utah Pet Partners (UPP) teams touch the lives of tens of thousands. Our trained animal-handler teams work with professionals in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, shelters, schools, assisted living and memory care centers, juvenile courts, and more.
What makes animal-assisted therapy unique is that animals, not humans, do the real work. Our animals have created a sense of joy and wellbeing from the people we serve, and the interactions are mutually beneficial for the animals.
Since 1993, UPP has focused on training, mentoring, and supporting animal-handler teams that provide animal-assisted therapy to a variety of clients throughout Utah. In 2022 our teams served over 56,000 clients, with 10,000 of those on a regular basis and 5000 volunteer hours statewide.
Much of our recruitment, continuing education, and training is through online resources and is available to interested volunteers all over the US, and the world. Other animal-assisted intervention organizations have noticed, and are following in our footsteps to train people to serve in their geographic areas.
We are working tirelessly to get new handlers trained and ready to bring comfort, love, hope and healing with their therapy animal partners.
Thank you for your support!
