UT H.A.B.I.T. Program
H.A.B.I.T. stands for Human-Animal Bonding in Tennessee. The program includes representatives from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, volunteers from the community, and private veterinary practitioners. It sponsors programs that foster pet visitation to nursing homes, assisted-living residences, retirement centers, mental health centers, residences for children with special needs, rehabilitation facilities, hospital settings, and other facilities.
How You Can Help
Do you have a pet that would make a wonderful H.A.B.I.T. pet? Maybe you enjoy bringing a smile to someone's face? We are always glad to have another smiling face (human or pet) to help out! Visit our website for more information on volunteering.
