"Become a Therapy Team" or "Evaluations" and there will be links to documents with information and phone number for a person to assist!
Prairieland is a friendly group of folks from the heartland who are interested in promoting the human/animal bond,
Our group provides human/animal visitation teams to healthcare facilities, schools, and other facilities that can benefit from interactions with animals.
We conduct educational seminars and workshops and promote a mentoring program for newly registered teams.
The Association meets about six times a year, and two or more times annually, it conducts Pet Partners evaluation events for prospective human/animal visitation teams.

Therapy animal work is a rewarding experience. As a therapy animal team you will:
Share the animal you love with others
Have an activity to do with your animal
Have a sense of purpose
Give back to your community
Remember, you don't need a registered visitation animal (or any animal) to join and participate in Prairieland, just an interest in animal visitation.
We would love to meet you!
