Volunteer with HABIC

You and your animal share the ability to improve the life of someone in need. HABIC Volunteer Teams gain knowledge on the human-animal bond, develop skills around animal behavior and training, and work with their pets as registered therapy animals.

HABIC trains volunteer animal therapy teams who subsequently help build trust, strengthen relationships, and facilitate the therapeutic process in hospitals, schools, assisted living facilities, and more places in local communities.

HABIC offers courses and certificates through Colorado State University for the purpose of allowing working professionals to value the science behind human-animal interactions and consequently use human-animal bond to help populations they serve.

It’s important to realize that research leads to results. As a nonprofit center in Colorado State University’s School of Social Work, HABIC supports research studies to explore outcomes of human-animal interactions for human health and wellbeing.
