Welcome to the Pet Hug Pack Team Page!

A national model for visiting animal team programs, the Pet Hug Pack® is ARF's renowned therapy animal program composed of more than 200 teams of qualified pets and their volunteer handlers. Each year since 2002, thousands of children, seniors, veterans, and others in need in Contra Costa County experience the wet noses and unconditional love of these special dogs and cats.

Aside from regular visits to more than 50 facilities, Pet Hug Pack® animals participate in All Ears Reading®, humane education programs, and outreach events as ARF ambassadors and symbols of uncondional love and compassion.

Please support us and the animals in need by making a donation or joining our team.
