Welcome to Prescription: Pets 
Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Prescription: Pets has been bringing the healing power of pets to communities in Northern California since the year 2000. Our volunteer pet partner teams are trained for animal-assisted activities (AAA) and animal-assisted therapy (AAT), and as Read With Me teams. We have teams that visit many locations around Northern California including; Mercy Hospital in Redding, Mercy Mt. Shasta, Copper Ridge, Oakdale Heights, The Vista, One Safe Place, The Redding Library and various schools for Read With Me. 

Prescription Pets participated in the 2017 Giving Tuesday event sponsored by the Shasta Regional Community Foundation. We appreciate all the support provided by our local community.
