Animal-Assisted Activities

Discover the transformative power of Animal-Assisted Activities (AAA) in therapy. Engaging with trained animals can provide emotional support, reduce stress, and alleviate anxiety or depression. These activities offer physical benefits, including lowered blood pressure and enhanced motor skills through grooming, walking, and play. Animals serve as social bridges, fostering communication and socialization for individuals who struggle in these areas. Additionally, AAA stimulates cognition, boosting attention, memory, and problem-solving skills. Guided by trained professionals, Animal-Assisted Activities ensure safety and cater to specific needs, unlocking the incredible therapeutic potential of human-animal connections.


Alpacas are gentle animals that are generally safe for children and adults to be around. They are a popular choice for animal-assisted therapy programs, where they are used to provide comfort and companionship to people in need.


Experience the incredible healing power of dogs in animal-assisted therapy. These gentle and intuitive creatures provide emotional support, companionship, and unconditional love to individuals in therapeutic settings.


Our team is eager to work with all clients, great and small.

Julie DeLuccy


I'm a mental health professional with over 20 years experience serving disadvantaged populations in various settings in New Jersey. I recently pursued my Masters of Animal Science and Behaviors to help enhance my profession as it develops and places greater emphasis on the human-animal connection and animal-assisted interventions. My intentions are to help merge the two worlds of human and animal welfare for the mutual benefit of both.
