The Animal-Assisted Therapy/Activities program visits over 400 patients monthly utilizing therapy animals (dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks and chickens) for visitation and therapy. We visit different facilities around Maui, helping children and adults with special needs, patients and seniors in hospitals, rehabilitation, convalescent, assisted-care, pediatric, adult-day care and Alzheimer’s facilities.
Volunteer opportunities are open for new volunteers on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Click here for more information.
HBC also offers an unpaid internship for students to learn about the field of Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) and Animal Assisted-Activities (AAA) in the clinical environment.
