In honor of National Therapy Animal Day on April 30, thousands of bakers will be breaking out their mixing bowls and whipping up some treats and sweets to celebrate the human-animal bond. Your participation in Treats & Sweets Day will support Pet Partners in training and registering thousands of therapy animal teams who make millions of life-enhancing visits each year.
You can pick any day this Spring that works for you and your sweet-toothed customers, but many of our bakers will choose to host their sales and events on April 30 in celebration of National Therapy Animal Day.
Treats & Sweets Day is an annual fundraiser to bring people and pets together in honor of National Therapy Animal Day on April 30.

Since 2015, Treats & Sweets Day has raised nearly $130,000 to register therapy animal teams and bring the love of animals to those in need.
