Prairieland is a fun and friendly group of folks from the heartland who are interested in promoting the human/animal bond.

Our group provides registered pet therapy teams to nursing homes, retirement homes, hospitals, schools and other facilities that can benefit from interactions with a therapy animal.

The Association meets 4 times a year, participates in local community events and provides speakers to various organizations.

We encourage evaluation and registration of animals to ensure that they are welcome at every facility. Our members belong to: Pet Partners and Alliance of Therapy Dogs.

Contact us if you have any questions, comments or inquiries (use email form at the bottom of this page).
