Chimo Animal-Assisted TherapyÂ is an innovative not-for-profit initiative that assists in the development, planning, and implementation of Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) at a wide variety of facilities.
Many individuals have seen the benefits of Animal-Assisted Therapy when a motivated therapist brings their own animal in to help their clients. At Chimo AAT, we strive to bring those same benefits to all clients. We train all interested therapists and employ means of finding suitable animals to work with them, such as certified volunteer animals.

Deb P. has been involved with Chimo AAT since 2006. Â She is a shining example of all the things that an organization like ours would love to see in a volunteer. Â Her dedication to Chimo is illustrated through her passion for her placements, her tireless efforts in improving programming and being a member of our committees.
Her first dog, Donovan, lefts some rather big paws prints to fill, but her new “pawtner”, Levi, is living up to the challenge! Â Levi is a Golden Retriever with a special gift for patience and accepts love in any form. Â He attends weekly placements with Deb on Saturdays working with special-needs children. Â Levi is so loved that the year-end party for the program turned into a celebration of his birthday!
We are so lucky to have Deb and Levi on our team and truly appreciate their level of dedication and caring!
Become a Volunteer With Chimo
Chimo AAT certifies dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and mini-horses as therapy animals to volunteer at our affiliated facilities. Right now we specifically need volunteers who are available during normal business hours. We are also looking for volunteers without pets, or with pets that may not qualify as a therapy animal
