What Does an Animal-Assisted Therapy Team Do?

Categories: Blog, Humane Education

Each semester, Marin Humane welcomes a group of students into our Student Service Clubs. These animal-loving students spend the semester learning about Marin Humane become animal advocates through their work. Middle and high school students in the Junior and Senior Roots & Shoots clubs develop a community service project to guide their semester. These clubs are part of the national Roots & Shoots program started by Dr. Jane Goodall.

For their project this semester, students decided to invite a variety of speakers from different animal-involved organizations to teach us what they do. You can watch new installments of these virtual interviews every week and more from the Student Service Club blog.

Join us today as we meet with some of Marin Humane’s Animal-Assisted Therapy Teams and learn about their work in the community. Even though their work is paused right now, we’ll hear about their favorite visits pre-COVID and how they are staying involved virtually. You can learn more about our Animal-Assisted Programs through our Community Engagement department.
