Request a TheraPets Visit

The ARL is dependent on individual and corporate contributions to care for its animals and fund our programs, including TheraPets. 
To make a one-time or monthly donation to help provide therapeutic pet visits in our community, click here and reference "TheraPets".


Are you interested in having TheraPets visit your facility or event*? We're happy to help.

*Requests for one-time visits/events must be submitted a minimum of 30 days in advance.
Please contact Cat McAuliffe (TheraPets@arl-iowa.org) if your event is less than 30 days from today.
 


Please note: Due to insurance regulations, TheraPets teams are never allowed to visit private residences unless under the direct guidance of a home health care agency who requests the visit on behalf of their client.

All fields marked with * are required.

Due to the current high demand for TheraPets, there is a delay in fulfilling new facility visit requests.

Visit Information

    ARL TheraPets are not service animals. Rather, they are ARL volunteers’ personal pets that are invited into both public and private places to provide comfort, relaxation and enjoyment to others.
