When it comes to being a therapy animal, Monkey doesn’t monkey around! Monkey and her handler Melodie have been registered with Therapy Animals of Utah since 2016, and volunteer at the Park City Library for their Paws to Read Program, at Kamas Elementary School for reading sessions in their after-care program, and at Sante Assisted Living in Heber City.
The team conducts weekly visits, usually rotating through the different facilities. They also volunteer at several special events. Monkey especially loves stress relief events during Finals week at the University of Utah.
