Sharing our pets to enhance well-being and education

Imagine never being able to touch or see your pet again? Sharing our pets benefits others (motivating, engaging, listening, well-being). Our pets are companions and friends. They are an intrinsic part of our wellbeing. For those who “must” give up their pet, carefully sharing ours can lessen the grief and bring joy, as long as we are, safe and empathetic.


If your intention is to work with pets in a therapeutic environment - consider Pet Partner Registration. This ensures the visiting facilities that you contact are aware of your experience and that your pet is trained, healthy and enjoys visiting.

As a team, inspiring confidence while engaging with others is a commitment of time, love and caring. Like us, our pets can suffer from sensory overload.

YAYABA - you are your animal’s best advocate.

Being aware and knowing how to navigate with your pet on visits is essential. Recognizing stressors like when a visit is going well (or not), requires a trust with your pet, and effective communication with facility, staff and clients. It is a team effort.

We are happy to offer support. For more information Email is preferred.

Directions to NEPP

Dogs are my favorite role models. I want to work like a dog, doing what I was born to do with joy and purpose. I want to play like a dog, with total, jolly abandon. I want to love like a dog,with unabashed devotion and complete lack of concern about what people do for a living, how much money they have, or how much they weigh.The fact that we still live with dogs, even when we don't have to herd or hunt for our dinner, gives me hope for humans and canines alike.

~ Oprah Winfrey

Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who possessed Beauty without Vanity, Strength without Insolence, Courage without Ferocity, and all the Virtues of Man, without his Vices.This Praise, which would be unmeaning flattery if inscribed over human ashes, is a just tribute to the Memory of Boatswain, a Dog. ~ George Gordon, Lord Byron, "Inscription on the Monument of a Newfoundland Dog"

Dogs are not my whole world, they help to make it whole. They have and are my therapy, leading me to paths I would never venture on my own. ~ Maureen Ross

I have more in common with animal people. I find myself disappointed with those who are not interested in animals, they lack warmth and tend to be a little self centered. Animal people have a certain empathy -- this isn’t just me talking now. Research has shown this to be true.   ~ Betty White
