Tails Of Joy was established in 1995 by a small group who were making regular pet therapy visits with their companion dogs to area nursing homes. Since then the Tails Of Joy family has grown considerably. Members currently visit in a number of facilities and participate in a wide variety of programs with dogs, cats, and rabbits.
Visiting teams are registered with a nationally recognized animal therapy organization.
