Animal-assisted therapy has the power to help you manage a variety of health conditions. Through Divine Therapy Pets, LLC, our pet therapy arm, In HIS Image offers Bengal, and Kurilian Bobtail cats as well as Havanese dogs. These animals are raised underfoot in the home of Dr. Amy Holland, our Medical Director, and are specifically selected and bred as therapy animals. All have grown up around Dr. Holland’s children and family!
And yes, we offer Bengal and Kurilian cats for purchase! To ensure the health of our animals, both of our catteries, BengalTherapy and CatPal, are “closed” catteries and are certified feline leukemia (FeLV) negative. To ensure that all of the Bengal kittens we sell are healthy, we administer annual HCM screenings for every cat in our breeding program.
Ask about our special programs for hospitals, hospice centers, nursing homes, libraries, schools, and more. Many of the animals you meet at our Marietta location are part of these dedicated pet therapy programs!
At Divine Therapy Pets, we’re committed to supporting patients who benefit from animal-assisted therapy. That’s why we also offer service animal certification, so you can take your pet with you when you travel – no matter where you go or how you choose to get there!
