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. 

Our Next Workshop for prospective teams will be scheduled for February 25, 2017, due to high demand we have scheduled an additional workshop for April 22, 2017. You must take a Workshop, either Online at or in person through Prescription Pets, prior to registering for an Evaluation. Once you have completed the workshop you can sign up through the Pet Partners website at for a scheduled evaluation. Evaluations are listed by location and date. Prescription Pets Evaluations are held at the Oxford Suites Hotel at 1967 Hilltop Drive in Redding, CA. The next Evaluation is scheduled for March 25, 2017.
