How We Help
We Contribute to Animal Therapy Organizations.
Lives enhanced by animal therapy organizations are countless.
There are many animal therapy nonprofit organizations dedicated to exploring and promoting the power of the human-animal bond. We are dedicated to the support of these therapies and the organizations of animal-assisted care who enhance and heal the lives of people that benefit from these. therapies.
We directly support animal-assisted therapy nonprofits organizations through the self-funded efforts of The Lacey Family Foundation 501(C)(3) non-profit organization. The Lacey Family Foundation’s grant-based organization has helped organizations to strengthen and widen their services to enhance animal therapy.
Our support also comes from advocacy in educating and voicing the many health benefits associated with this type of treatment. Through animal-assisted activities (AAA) and animal-assisted therapies (AAT) that make-up a wide pool of nonprofits need help by reinforcing these benefits which impact humans’ lives.
