Requesting a Special Visit

Loving Animals Providing Smiles has supported many community groups with one-time or annual visits for special occasions.

We can provide schools with information and demonstrations about dog safety, similar to the program we’ve done at Browns Valley Elementary School for many years. We recently visited an after-school program for primary school students in Benicia, which included reading practice with our trained CAPERS (“Children and Pets Enjoy Reading Success”) teams. CAPERS teams can support a read-a-thon or other reading activity.

We can meet with facility staff at an in-service training session and share ideas on how best to utilize AAT teams with the facility’s specific client population.

We can speak on animal-assisted therapy to private groups, as we have done for the Kiwanis and other local service clubs.

We have also brought our teams to visit at the ParentsCan and Elks Club Christmas parties.
