Animal Assisted Intervention International (AAII) is a non-profit organization that caters to Animal Assisted Intervention (AAI) within professional healthcare and social service settings. Our members are occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses, counselors, and professional animal trainers who train animals & their humans specifically for this level of professional work.
Our members are individuals or organizations. They include animals in their healthcare, social service, and educational interventions and practices. They do animal assisted interventions against remuneration or as volunteers. They are professionals because they are experienced and skillful in their field, they all maintain a practice of minimum standards and participate in continuing education.
AAII’s goal is to create a community of practitioners who share the interest in the human-animal bond and professional levels for standards of practice. AAII will provide education and conferences for its members to meet this end.
