    • Animal evaluator and volunteer instructor courses are available to assist with skills to select animals and train staff and volunteers.

    • Animals such as dogs and cats should be certified with Therapeutic Dog Services to verify animals’ well-being and temperament.

    • Adequate strategic planning will lead to successful implementation of an AAI program
