Happy Tails volunteers share the unconditional love of their pets with people of all ages with physical, social, emotional,  and cognitive needs at healthcare facilities, social agencies,  and special needs programs.

 

Happy Tails Pet Therapy is a metro Atlanta organization.  Founded in 1991, our 300 active volunteers make more than 2,000 pet-assisted therapy visits annually, sharing the unconditional love of their pets with those in need. We visit at 80+ facilities throughout metro Atlanta including hospitals, nursing homes, schools, special events and much more.

Happy Tails pets consist of dogs of all sizes, cats, and bunnies. They are required to have basic obedience as well as pass a temperament and obedience test to make sure they have what it takes to be a therapy animal.

If you think your dog, cat or bunny would make a good therapy pet, learn more at happytailspets.org
