Therapy Animal Teams in Kansas City
Mo-Kan Pet Partners is a local Community Partner of Pet Partners, the nation’s largest and most prestigious nonprofit registering handlers of multiple species as volunteer teams providing Animal-Assisted Interventions. Our volunteers are trained and evaluated through Pet Partners processes. At a local level, we assist our members as they serve the health and educational facilities (hospitals, nursing homes, mental health programs, Veterans services, hospice organizations, schools) as well as camps, libraries, and community events.
Our members enjoy social opportunities, mentoring and ongoing educational enrichment.
