Happy Tails Pet Therapy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Happy Tails volunteers share the unconditional love of their pets with people of all ages with physical, social, emotional and cognitive needs at healthcare facilities, social agencies and special needs programs throughout the metro Atlanta community.
Happy Tails mission is to share the unconditional love of our pets with people of all ages with physical, social, emotional and cognitive needs at healthcare facilities, social agencies and special needs programs throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area.
Happy Tails is a group of pet owners with a common goal – to volunteer time to share the unconditional love and joy pets can give to patients and residents at a variety of facilities. To participate in Happy Tails, all pets must have a recent veterinary examination and meet specific animal health requirements. In addition, volunteers with dogs must have completed a basic obedience course with their pet. Before beginning visits with their pet, volunteers must attend orientation, pet/handler evaluation, volunteer training and attend at least one observation visit at a current client facility without their pet. Happy Tails also schedules a variety of workshops to members throughout the year in an effort to enhance client visits.
