PAWS FOR A CAUSE
Companions, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3), 100% volunteer organization that was founded in Fairbanks in 1986. The Board of Directors meet monthly or as needed.
For over 30 years, Companions, Inc. volunteers have brought therapy animals to those who need and benefit from the therapeutic value of our trained pets. Sites visited include Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, Denali Center, FRA and more. There is a great need for pet therapy and new volunteers are always welcome!
All animals are screened for temperament, health, grooming and cleanliness. Though most volunteers have dogs, there have also been rabbits, cats, horses, reptiles and other friendly animals in the program. In addition, one doesn’t need to have a pet to be a volunteer.
