Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado (AATPC) is one of the first counseling centers in the nation to integrate professional therapists with therapy animals to facilitate the counseling process. AATPC is a non-profit organization that aims to make this type of therapy available to everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. Our program is specifically geared to serve economically, physically, and/or mentally disadvantaged individuals and families. The animals we currently work with are dogs, cats, rats, rabbits, horses, and goats.
The need for this specific type of therapy has grown exponentially in the past 5 years. It has grown so much that we are now having to put client's on a wait list. We would love to be able to move to a bigger property to accommodate more clients and more animals. The price for a new property is approximately $1,000,000. To make this possible we need your help!
AATPC has also recently brought on an Administrative Assistant to help us with insurance billing. We would love to be able to bring her on as a full time staff member, but we unfortunately do not have the money to pay her what she needs for the amount of work she does. We need $1000 a month for her salary. She is a huge part of our family and we want to be able to keep her on our staff and give her the salary she deserves!
