Las Vegas Animal Assisted Therapy established its foundation to provide outpatient mental health to individuals within Clark County, Nevada, that are without medical/mental health insurance coverage, lack adequate insurance coverage or are otherwise ineligible to utilize non-crisis therapeutic interventions to increase their overall psychological well-being and welfare, e.g. the homeless population of Clark County, Nevada and qualified/non-qualified Veterans of the Armed Forces. Las Vegas Animal Assisted Therapy will concurrently provide services to individuals, families, couples, groups, adults and minors from the ages of four to eight-five years old. Las Vegas Animal Assisted Therapy trains, rescues and utilizes animals from recognized rescue organizations for therapeutic purposes. All animals are handled and cared for by the volunteers committed to creating a bonding experience between animal and human in a therapeutic setting. We currently have dogs, hedgehogs, saltwater fish, a bird and a chinchilla. We will be receiving guinea pigs as well. As a licensed clinical practice, certification for animals to function as Emotional Support Animals (ESA) may also be completed in our programs. We have had the pleasure of turning rescues into successful ESA's for youth with Special Needs. We were featured on Channel 13 News Las Vegas for our therapeutic work with children and animals.
