Participating schools


If your school is interested in bringing pet-assisted therapy to your students, please Contact Us with your contact information and comments/questions. There is no cost to participate, but we do require that the school provides a liaison for PetPalsNC (usually the school social worker and/or school counselor), and that he/she and the school principal agree to and sign a Memorandum of Agreement which defines the expectations for the liaison, the school, and for PetPals.

The following is a list of participating schools; as we recruit additional volunteers, we will be able to serve more schools.
