Animal-Assisted Therapy-Submit Your Photos

2013 Calendar Submission
Pets have been visiting nursing facilities and other health care settings for many years. Over time, these visits have made such a difference in the lives of patients that Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) has evolved to improve a patient’s social, emotional, or cognitive functioning. Animals used in therapy may include a variety of animals including domesticated pets, farm animals and marine mammals. 

Through the publication of the Caring Canines calendar, the AMDA Foundation sought to document their touching and inspiring personal stories about these examples of animal assisted therapy across the country. The calendar contains photographs and stories selected from the submissions contributed by LTC residents and staff members, pet lovers, and professional photographers through a nationwide campaign.

If you wish to submit photos and your stories for the 2015 Caring Canines calendar, please note the deadline is Friday, July 11, 2014.
