The members of mvPTa provide Animal Assisted Therapy services to individuals in many facilities throughout the Greater Miami Valley area. There are over 125 active pet therapy teams in the mvPTa. Teams are typically made up of a pet and their owner, (dogs, rabbits, cats, and hand-held pets). However, we do have some escorts that do not have a pet of their own and are certified to work with another person’s pet. mvPTa volunteers visit in facilities throughout the Miami Valley area. Some of these facilities include Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton Children’s Hospital, Community Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Wright Patterson Medical Center, Hospice of Dayton and numerous Nursing/Assisted Living facilities, libraries, and schools.
