WHAT We Do
We are a human/canine/feline team of Animal-Assisted Intervention (AAI) providers with 10+ years of experience helping both people and animals reach healing milestones through the special bond they share. AAI is a broad term used to describe the utilization of animals in a wide range of health, education and human service modalities, as a way of supplementing and strengthening more traditional forms of teaching and treatment. In addition to utilizing professional therapy animals in behavioral healthcare settings (in person) in Kern County, H2H is adapting to the rapidly-changing world by developing innovative programming that brings pet therapy's medicinal benefits into the arena of telehealth in virtual meeting spaces. In addition to providing Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) to clients enrolled in addiction recovery and behavioral healthcare programs nationwide, we are also here to teach individuals and families at home how to bring out the therapy animal in their own pets, while cultivating and harnessing the best parts of themselves in the process.
