Meet Our Stars
The animals of NSTA are the personal pets of their handlers and include dogs, guinea pigs, cats, rabbits, and miniature horses. All our therapy animals are specially trained and, along with their handlers, are tested and registered through the Pet Partners® program, which requires a re-evaluation every two years. This registration allows our teams to volunteer in a variety of facilities such as hospitals, schools, libraries, nursing homes, hospice and physical therapy centers, assisted living facilities, and more. Please visit our In Remembrance page, where we honor NSTA animal partners who have gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
