Welcome

Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati is an all-volunteer group of over 200 volunteer Therapy Teams that provide Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) to clients throughout the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky metro area. We are proud to be a Community Partner with Pet Partners® (formerly known as the Delta Society®) organization. Our group actively promotes the benefits of the human-animal connection through community involvement, close cooperation with client facilities, and ongoing training, evaluation and mentorship opportunities for our members. Many of our members also volunteer in the Pages 'N Paws reading program at several local schools, libraries and bookstores. We are also available for public or private speaking engagements and to assist client facilities in establishing a pet therapy program and a training program for their staff and volunteers. Browse through our website to learn more and see how you can become involved.


Upcoming Events

New Workshops! Check it Out!

  • Evaluators Glenna Mockbee and Robin Daniels, in conjunction with Pet Partners, will be offering a FREE MINI WORKSHOP to Handler Teams upon their completion of the Pet Partners On-Line Workshop. This will, for the time being, replace our usual In- Person Workshops. This is a Human only 2 hour Mini Workshop called Handling Skills for Safe Visits. This mini workshop is designed to help prepare handlers for their team evaluation. The content focuses on core handling skills that are scored during the evaluation as well as some additional skills such as positioning and barrier use. This also gives you, the handler, time to ask any questions that you still might have.
  • You may sign up for Pet Partners On-Line Workshops at www.petpartners.org . You can work at your own pace doing their On-Line Workshop, and have up to a year to complete it.
  • We hope to see many of you at our FREE MINI WORKSHOPS in the near future! It is only a 2 hour commitment and will be quite helpful for your successful Evaluation! You will register for these FREE Mini Workshops on the Pet Partners Calendar On-Line just like an original In-Person Workshop. ( www.petpartners.org )
  • Please contact Robin Daniels or Glenna Mockbee
