Teams are welcome in many hospitals, nursing and assisted living facilities, rehabs, private practice, schools and libraries.

Registered Pet Partner Teams are well-known for their training, integrity and professionalism. The dogs (and other pets) need to be desensitized to a broad variety of sights, sounds and smells. Teams enjoy engaging with people with a keen awareness of what is going on around them and how to guide the visit for safety.

Where are Registered Therapy Teams Welcomed?


Do you have a calm, friendly dog or cat? Are you interested in visiting local hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living, schools, libraries or other venues?

Can you imagine never being able to touch or see a pet again? It happens and you can make a difference.

New England Pet Partners Inc. evolved in 2007 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicating to raising awareness about the positive benefits that pets can have on human health and well-being.

We are expanding the therapeutic role by training and registering teams to work, as an adjunct therapy, in health care and education.

Registered teams visit individuals, patients and/or groups. Teams participate in private practice, physical and occupational therapy, mental health and wellness, cancer and kidney units and more ...

Teams help children improve their reading skills through reading with dogs, when appropriate.  

All teams are specially trained and registered. We offer mentoring and support through connecting with clients, staff and facilities.

We enjoy sharing our pets, so that no-one is left without that indelible connection.
