Visit with a registered* therapy dog to bring a little rest and relaxation to your day. Therapy animals* are generally privately owned pets who are brought by their handlers to places to bring joy and smiles.

This program is made possible by Tufts Paws for People, which is a Community Partner of the Pet Partners organization.

*Tufts Paws for People uses the national Pet Partners program to register their volunteer teams. This program requires handler training and evaluation of animals before they can be approved to volunteer. For more information about Pet Partners, visit

*A therapy animal is an animal that has been trained to provide specific human populations with animal contact. Therapy animals are typically personal pets. Their work is not focused on their own handler like a service animal; instead, their work provides benefits to other people. A therapy animal is not specifically defined by federal law, nor is a therapy animal granted any special privileges or provisions by federal law. This means that a therapy animal is not allowed to enter any facility that does not normally allow pets, except when they have been invited.
