Welcome TO MIAMI VALLEY PET Therapy,
Pet’s That Care…
The members of mvPTa provide Animal Assisted Therapy services to individuals in many facilities throughout the Greater Miami Valley area. There are over 125 active pet therapy teams in the mvPTa. Teams are typically made up of a pet and their owner, (dogs, rabbits, cats, and hand-held pets). mvPTa volunteers visit in facilities throughout the Miami Valley area. Some of these facilities include Miami Valley Hospital, Dayton Children’s Hospital, Community Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, Wright Patterson Medical Center, Southview Hospital, Kettering Medical Center, Hospice of Dayton and numerous Nursing/Assisted Living facilities, libraries, and schools.
