Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas is a 501(c)(3) corporation, which offers therapy teams that have successfully completed the Animal-Assisted Therapy Certification* process offered through the award-winning DoveLewis Animal Emergency Hospital in Portland, OR. We currently service the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA area, providing visitations to senior communities, hospitals, rehab facilities, and schools. We also provide our “theme-decorated” llamas and alpaca for birthday parties, BBQ’s, and other private and corporate PR events.
Since our Certification* with Rojo in 2007, we have made nearly 700 therapeutic visits with our wonderful animals. Rojo, Smokey and Beni are also ranked as the top three “Beyond the Showring” PR llamas in the world according to the International Lama Registry!
Rojo and Napoleon were recently in the news- view their story here!
We are also Representatives for Quechua Benefit , and support their effort to meet the needs of the poorest of the poor that live in the highlands of Quechua Peru. Please visit their website to learn more about this wonderful organization!
*Animal Therapy Certification involves extensive training, evaluation, and mentoring by trained AAT professionals specializing in the certification process. It needs to be noted that Delta Society/Pet Partner teams are “registered”, not certified, as Pet Partners does not participate in the handler’s or animal’s training. Animals that have been certified may also be registered with Pet Partners, however, most registered Pet Partners are not certified.
