Mobile ANT

Therapeutic animal visits for elders, schools, community & corporate events.

Mobile ANT provides a unique opportunity for a multitude of community members to experience the joy of therapy animal interaction. Our visiting therapy animals include: horses, miniature horses, goats, dogs, chickens, & rabbits.

For Elder Care Facilities and Schools

Interested in having our animals visit at your facility or school? We serve the greater Whatcom County area and offer one-hour visits with horses, mini-horses, and small animals (rabbits, goats, chickens, and dogs). Our unique intergenerational visits bring therapy animals & youth volunteers to engage with seniors, offering youth a chance to appreciate elders & aging in a positive way, and helping elders discover that they have value as their stories and humor are enjoyed. In addition, elders also benefit from the physiological effects of animal interaction, such as lowered blood pressure & reduced cortisol levels.

*Note: Rates are valid for 1-hour visits within Whatcom County. For visits to Skagit & King County, a travel fee applies. Please contact us for a quote.


2021 Rates:

1-Hour visit with Small Animals (rabbits, chickens, goats, dogs) – $175.00
1-Hour visit with Horses + Miniature Horses – $250.00

For Community and Corporate Events

We are proud to offer fun, meaningful, & therapeutic animal experiences for your guests, employees, and events! These experiences can help to reduce anxiety, promote socialization & engagement, decrease feelings of isolation, improve focus & concentration, and offer comfort & emotional support.

Fees depend on location, event duration, number of guests, and hours requested. Please contact us for a quote.

Mobile ANT has partnered with Microsoft to provide a “Cuddle Corner” at large events, helping guests & employees de-stress from busy expos. Contact us to see how our animals can help you!

Volunteer with Mobile ANT

We look for families & individuals with a love for animals, appropriate emotion & behavior regulation, and ability to make a 6-month commitment of at least one visit per month. Due to facility schedules, some Mobile ANT visits are held during the school day so homeschooling families may be a great fit. If interested, please contact the volunteer coordinator.

Testimonials

“I don’t have a close relationship with my own grandparents. So I give my love to these people in the home.”
– Youth Volunteer

“Thanks to you, I feel like I’m making a difference by making seniors happy by bringing animals in for the company.”
– Shuksan Middle School Student

“I met a lady whose name is Boots. She had a stroke and she can’t move around. One day she came to talk to me and said that I was pretty. She told me her story and I told her mine. At the end, she held my hands and we cried together. We don’t judge each other. We are just the same. She said she didn’t want to live after the stroke, but meeting me made her want to be alive.”
– Teen in Recovery

“It’s amazing how an old man sitting with a chicken on his lap will come to life as he remembers his childhood on a farm, or how the presence of Gabby [the Golden Retriever] can delight a nursing home resident missing her own pet.”
– Mobile ANT Staff Member
