Bow Wow Wednesdays

June 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Discovery Science Place has partnered with Therapet to bring you Bow Wow Wednedays twice per month from 12:00-1:00pm. This event will include visits from two Therapet animals and their handlers to DSP’s Hometown Vet Clinic for museum guests to spend some time with these loveable animals.

Therapet currently has 90+ dogs, 3 cats and a cockatoo working in their programs.  The animals do far more than just visit patients; they also establish goal-oriented therapy programs as well as visitation programs.

Therapet’s educational goal is to:

  1. Establish & Communicate standards of practice for using specially trained animals in healthcare and educational settings.
  2. Provide education to healthcare, educators, facility leaders and volunteers.
  3. Educate communities on opportunities and benefits of Animal Assisted Therapy.
  4. Train, certify and assure competency of human/animal volunteer teams.

At each DSP event, museum guests can collect Therapet trading cards for each therapy animal. Make sure to attend each event to collect them all!
