I’m raising funds to start an animal assisted therapy(AAT) organization. To provide AAT with therapy in at risk schools and alternative schools; spreading puppy love and reducing emotional health symptoms in children.
I am a Psychotherapist and the CEO of Phoenix Stars; looking for a new way to reach the students involved in in-school therapy programs. I currently have a loving German Shepherd that brings joy to everyone she comes into contact with (with the exception of people whom don't like dogs) either petting or playing. I have noticed in recent studies there have been findings that prove a reduction in anxiety, depression, PTSD symptoms, and behaviors in children and adults. I am looking to develop a pilot approach by contracting other Therapist with loving dogs to join the cause. In order to ensure everyone's safety and ensure exceptional services, our puppies need formal training.
I have outlined the expenses included in my funding request:
Board and Train(1 week)-$1,400 for 2 dogs in our program: $2,800
Therapy training-$950 for 2 dogs in our program-$1,900
Insurance coverage for AAT: $300 for 2 dogs
Organization and school liability coverage: 1,130
Contract Therapist salary: $2,500
Office Space for training and support services: $2,760
