Joyous Paws Pet Therapy Team is in need of more human/animal teams for visit with seniors, read with children, and work with newly released prisoners. We currently serve 19 facilities, including 3  library reading programs.  We have dogs, birds and a cat; but are open to other suitable animals.   Animals should be calm in stimulating environments and enjoy being handled (sometimes roughly).  For those animals/humans not quite ready but interested, check out the pet therapy academy. We require a commitment of only 4 hours per year. For more information, visit our link on this site, or contact Marie at [email protected]

  • "Marie saved my dog from being euthanized by the courts when he bit someone. He was suffering from high anxiety and fear aggression. With Marie's expert training she turned my dog Tanner into an obedient and good companion."
  • "We adopted a shelter kitten whose problems included "thinking out of the litter box" and anxiety issues. Marie did a wonderful job helping us understand why the kitten, now cat, would have these problems and helped us to institute a routine to avoid them. After a year and a half, we all coexist happily and our cat is a beloved family member."
  • "Great trainers! They truly understand canines and what they need to live a happy life with their families!"
