The bond between animals and people is powerfully therapeutic. The San Francisco SPCA’s Animal Therapy Program (AAT) sends volunteers with dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, and other animals to visit hospitals, schools, nursing and convalescent homes, psychiatric hospitals, youth facilities and more. Through its AAT program, which began in 1981, the SF SPCA conducts over 300 visits per month, serving almost 80,000 San Francisco community members annually.
Animal Assisted Therapy can help:
Campus visits may not be what you think of when you imagine an AAT visit, but they are a great way to offer some stress relief! Visits with great dogs like these two are also just plain old fun!
David Lasker takes his Yellow Labrador, Jacee, to visit several San Francisco campuses. The visits play to Jacee’s high energy level and her liveliness blossoms! Jacee loves to greet new people she loves meeting students!
Sammie, Aine O’Connell’s Yorkie mix, is a bit more reserved, but she’s the perfect lap dog for students needing quiet, relaxing time. . Sammie loves her AAT job and simply thrives on students loving her!
A message from the San Francisco SPCA: By doing more of these campus visits, The SF SPCA finds that the students involved become animal advocates and help spread the word about AAT. We truly enjoy the experience of working with so many campuses across San Francisco!
