About Us

The Lacey Family Foundation

The Lacey Family Foundation was born from the idea that supporting nonprofit animal therapy organizations can advance many health benefits they provide to improve the everyday lives of those that need it most.


Fortunately, there are many people and organizations dedicated to making animal-assisted therapy a reality. These countless nonprofits and volunteers are key to the development and care-bringing that stem from animal therapy.


These well-documented practices involve work to address physical, mental, and emotional well-being to aid in the healing process that changes lives in immeasurable ways.


We are inspired by them and strive to aid them in their worthy endeavors.
