Animals as Natural Therapy provides life-changing opportunities for our participants. Unfortunately, the costs associated with the services we provide are considerable. 90% of ANT participants are low income and cannot afford program fees. ANT subsidizes the costs of sessions through its fundraising efforts. Gifts from our community help to make all of this possible for all of our participants.
