We bring people and animals together through safe, professional, and innovative programming


CAAWLS' mission is to develop and make available effective animal assisted therapeutic services to health and social services providers. We hope to educate and promote Animal Assisted Interaction (AAI) to the community, and use AAI as a medium for health, wellness, and education.

I feel a soul.”
