North Carolina Pet Partners® (NCPP) is an affiliate group of Pet Partners® (formerly Delta Society). NCPP includes registered Pet Partners Therapy Animal Teams (handlers and their animals) in the central North Carolina and adjacent Virginia geographies. NCPP also includes individuals interested in the Therapy Animals program who may not be registered Pet Partners Therapy Animal teams.
NCPP encourages, promotes and organizes animal-assisted activities (AAA) and animal-assisted therapy (AAT). NCPP members are committed to fostering education regarding Pet Partners and the benefits of animal-assisted therapy. NCPP assists members in the pursuit of AAA and AAT opportunities.
Currently, NCPP teams serve various departments in the Cone Health System (rehabilitation, radiation, oncology, telemetry, urology, behavioral health, pediatrics). In addition, Pet Partners Therapy Animal teams serve nursing homes, juvenile detention centers, Hospice and Palliative Care, children's camps, cancer centers, and Alzheimer's care. NCPP teams also provide animal assisted reading partners for children in the Guilford County School System.
Through AAA and AAT opportunities, NCPP teams improve human health through therapy animals.
Helping people live healthier and happier lives by sharing the healing power of pets.
