JOIN AND BECOME A TASA CARE TEAM MEMBER
Our CARE Program provides Crisis Animal REsponse support to communities throughout Texas who are experiencing disasters and crises of various types. Additionally CARE Teams work with counselors to support students in area school districts when a class or school has experienced a significant loss or difficult event and meet to discuss their questions, feelings, etc. CARE teams must first be experienced therapy teams and are then provided with additional training (FEMA, Human and Animal First Aid, CPR and crisis response techniques) as well as travel support when deploying overnight across Texas.
CARE Team Membership cost is $60.00
Affiliate member CARE teams are teams that provide animal therapy through another high-quality organization and who concurrently join Therapy Animals of San Antonio for CARE work only (their therapy work remains with their affiliate organization). The initial fee is $60 which includes one year annual membership (critical for insurance coverage specific to CARE work) and the CARE training class. Certifications, clothing and equipment costs are covered by Therapy Animals of San Antonio. The ongoing annual membership fee is $30.
