Animal Placement and Wellness Teams
Your journey to Wellness
Daily living is tough enough when you experience unpredictable moods, irritability, heightened anxiety, or the crippling nature of depression. Searching for doctors, therapists, community resources, and support groups can be exhausting, time-consuming, and deflating. Considering adding an animal for your mental wellness or that of a family member? This is a decision that comes with its own complities.
Go Fetch Wellness acts as a facilitator, connecting all the pieces to make this decision one that is manageable, even amongst the most difficult times. We work closely with people in your community to set up your "dog wellness team." This consists of all or part of the following: psychiatrist, therapist, dog trainer, local animal shelter, family members, and anyone else that is part of your recovery team. We find team members with an understanding of the struggle of mental health challenges as well as an appreciation for the role dogs may play in wellness.
The end goal, for many, is getting a dog. Careful selection and consideration will help ensure a great pairing. We want to set people up for success and give them the tools to integrate their dog into their daily wellness practice.
