The Delta Society Pet Partners® program was established in 1990 to ensure that “both ends of the leash,” people as well as animals, are well-prepared to participate in animal-assisted activity and animal-assisted therapy programs.

Pet Partners is the only national registry that requires volunteer training and screening of animal-handler teams.

Potential Pet Partner Teams are required to follow all Pet Partner policies and procedures in order to become registered Pet Partners. Handlers must be able to learn and demonstrate the skills necessary to visit safely with your animal in hospitals, nursing homes, classrooms, and other facilities.

You can do this in two different ways:

1. Attend an 8-hour Pet Partner Team training course when one is available and then be evaluated as a team.
2. Or you can complete an online course through Pet and then be evaluated.

Learn more about becoming a registered Pet Partners team by contacting us or check out our Calendar of Events page for upcoming evaluation dates.
