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.
