Mission

Summit Therapy Animal Services, LLC (SummitTAS) is dedicated to helping people achieve their rehabilitation and therapy goals through the use of animals. We work with people of all ages, but our specialty is working with children who are affected by intellectual, emotional or physical challenges, as well as families impacted by autism.

We provide the reliability and quality of a professional Therapy Animal Team where each staff member is dedicated to our Mission to Serve!

 

Beliefs

SummitTAS is operated with Christian beliefs and values, so treating everyone fairly and with respect is paramount.  We do not require our volunteers and employees to be Christian; however, we do expect each member to be respectful and professional.  Additionally, we do not limit our teams from working with other organizations. We know that there is a big need to be met and we can’t do it alone; therefore, we help our teams find their niche and encourage them to work in their strengths, even if it means they go another organization.

 

Professional

Successful interactions with our clients is paramount; therefore, each of our professional Therapy Animal Teams participates in a rigorous training and mentoring program where professionalism, quality and “out-of-the-box” thinking is stressed. After becoming a registered Therapy Animal Team, members are required to continue their training to effectively enhance the human/animal bond with our clients.  Our paid services provide the reliability and quality of a professional Activity Animal Team, where each staff member is dedicated to our “mission to serve.”
