Las Vegas Animal Assisted Therapy

A Nevada 501c3 Non-Profit




Booger was one-of-a-kind! This 3 year old Mantle male was a rescue from Sin Ciy Great Dane Rescue. He was a love-bug and a half. He provided so much therapeutic comfort to children in need. He has since been adopted to a wonderful family recovering from grief. He is a picture perfect Therapy Dog. 




Nemo was a truly special 4 month old Merle Great Dane. He was a rescue through Sin City Great Dane Rescue. This handsome little boy had a rough life, much like the children in our program. Together, Nemo and the children taught each other how to trust and be patient.

Mazie stole the hearts of many when her story was featured on Channel 13, Las Vegas. She was a rescue through Sin City Great Dane Rescue and was a natural therapy dog. Cheri has since assigned her as an Emotional Support Animal to a wonderful 14 year old young man with Autism. 


LVAAT is staffed by volunteers. Our therapy team are all on four paws!
