Now Completely Revised, the Definitive Guide for Animal Lovers Who Want to Get Involved in Animal-Assisted Therapy

For nursing home residents, AIDS patients, people with emotional or physical handicaps, and even prisoners, contact with animals can help lower blood pressure, release endorphins, and achieve specific treatment or program goals. This information-packed guide explains how you and your pet can make a difference in the lives of others.

Drawing from personal experience, extensive research, and heartwarming case studies, Mary Burch provides practical information for those wanting to volunteer with animals from obtaining liability insurance to evaluating clients progress. Not just an arena for dogs or cats, animal-assisted activities can involve rabbits, guinea pigs, horses, farm animals, and just about any other kind of animal. With Wanted! Animal Volunteers you ll discover what a difference you can make simply with your time, creativity, and love for animals.
