Faithful Friends Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) Ministry
207 Briarwood Court, League City, TX 77573
Faithful Friends AAT is a group of volunteers who have a common desire to spread joy and happiness to those who are in difficult situations by visiting them with their pets. God has given each of us special gifts. We need to share those gifts with those who need them. These pets have a very special way of demonstrating God’s unconditional love. They don’t care what you look like, whether you had a bad day or a good one, or whether you have physical or emotional pains. They love you just the way you are all the time. This is what people who are in long-term care facilities or recovering in rehabilitation hospitals need most of all – to be loved just the way they are!
