Animal Assisted Therapy


Thank you for your interest in the HSBC’s Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) program. The AAT program uses volunteers and their companion animals to provide social therapy to comfort children and adults with special needs or those experiencing life’s stresses. They serve as catalysts for social interaction and as bridges to interpersonal communication and attachment. It’s no wonder people love their pets so much!

COVID Update:

Teletherapy for facilities
Teletherapy options are currently available for existing facilities, hospitals, senior centers, school, daycares, enrolled in our Animal Assisted Therapy program. We encourage new facilities and organizations to join us. TeleTherapy is currently being offered in place of our normal therapy visits during these uncertain times when our therapy teams cannot physically visit on site.

These TeleTherapy visits will aim to provide social interaction, storytelling, dog tricks and an opportunity for participants to learn more about our volunteers and their therapy pet.

During these difficult times, our AAT team has gone virtual. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, a graduation or attending your next company meeting, the Humane Society’s Animal Assisted Therapy team is ready to add a little paws-itivity to your video conference.

For a minimum donation of $25, we’ll drop in on your next video call for a maximum of 10 minutes.

Just tell us about your online get together and we’ll schedule an animal to attend. Click below to learn more about our Zoomies program.
