Hello, dear friends. We are Japan Animal Therapy Association (JATA).
We have a wish – which we would like all of you in the world to know and share.
We love dogs. As many of you may already know, they have a great healing power. Our wish is to convey that power to the people who need it!
With the help of our 10,000 members, we are willing to be able to soothe the minds of the people who are at institutions.
For that purpose, we are willing to form a circle of 10,000 kind-hearted animal therapists.
We aim to train 10,000 animal therapy dogs and let harmony prevail between people and dogs.
