Pets Helping People, Inc. (PHP), our Board of Directors and our Staff subscribe to the following beliefs which serve as the foundation for our organization�s activities. PHP
- Interaction with loving, attentive pets can enrich the
quality of life for people of all ages, especially those with special needs.
- Excellence in the practice of VPFT can only be
achieved through professional education, training and evaluation.
- The desire to nurture is a strong and basic human need
and therapy pets can meet this need for people of all ages, especially those
with special needs.
- The welfare of animals used in pet therapy must be protected at all times.
- The recipients of VPFT can, within the limits of their
abilities, enhance feelings of self-worth by contributing to others through our
organization�s programs and we will help them to do so as appropriate.
