How Therapy Animals Enrich Lives
Companion animals offer humankind a vast range of gifts including:
- Unconditional love
Jake, an AHF Pet Partner.
The AHF supports Southern California programs that understand how much these gifts enhance our lives.
In an effort to broaden the scope of the foundation’s activities to include both the medical and psychosocial arenas, we partner with area institutions to provide therapeutic and educational support through our Pet Partner and READ programs.
