What We Do

Animals as Natural Therapy (ANT) offers mental & behavioral health programs for youth, veterans, families, & elders. Our programs are based on the knowledge that animals can teach important life skills, such as: respect for self & others, healthy boundaries, self-management, empathy, and clear communication.

Animals as Natural Therapy is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our programs are funded by donations. You can support this work by making a gift today!
