The primary purpose of a Therapy Bird is to provide affection and comfort to people in hospitals, retirement homes, nursing homes, schools, hospices, disaster areas, and to people with learning difficulties. Therapy birds are privately owned and tend to visit facilities on a regular basis. Although therapy animals provide a very important therapeutic service to all kinds of people in need, they are not considered "service animals" and they and their handlers have no protections under federal law. However, some states afford therapy animals their handlers rights and protections. For more information on the Therapy Bird designation and to register your bird, please visit Pet Partners at www.petpartners.org
