Do you know someone who could benefit
from the services Therapet offers?

Since most Therapet clients have no family and often are homebound, their pets are truly their lives. We know many more qualified clients are out there, we just need help finding them.

Therapet provides food and veterinary care for animals that are truly companions to their owners. These pets receive immunizations and spays/neuters as well as nutritious food, which certain elderly people may not be able to afford on their limited income. 

We accept client recommendations from individuals as well as a variety of social service agencies. Each client must meet a certain income requirement. Additionally, the client’s pet, be it a bird, cat or dog, must be determined to be a meaningful companion, not solely a watch animal.
