We don’t want financial constraints to stand in the way of potential pet therapy teams. One of our goals is to help with registration finances for qualifying individuals and their pets.
Due to limited funds we only have a small number of scholarships available. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of financial need and evaluated based on animal’s potential for therapy work and handler’s commitment to the process. Scholarships will be given to cover part of or the full cost of the online Handler’s Course, the Animal Health Screening (visit limited to Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic only), the in person evaluation, and the two year online registration. Read more about the evaluation and registration here. Scholarships will not cover training courses, pet therapy classes, or vaccinations.
Below is a breakdown of estimated costs:
Pet Partners Handler’s Course: $70
Pet Health Screening (at Flagstaff Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic): $25 (does not include vaccines)
Team Evaluation: $35
Registration: New $95, Renewing $70, Senior; minor; military or military dependent; individual with a disability $50.
Total estimated cost for team (not including training or vaccines): $180-$240
