National Conference

National “Animals Helping Humans” Month is celebrated between the 1 – 28 February every year. To celebrate, we offer events throughout the month both virtually and face to face with more than 40 speakers covering topics such as disabilities, animal-assisted therapy, learning and activities, assistance animals,  animal behaviour, research, ethics and standards. All attendees receive up to 6 months access to all recorded presentations. Attendance is free for ATL members.

Illness To Wellness

Animal-Assisted Services have grown out of the need for improved treatment acceptability; especially for those who have been impacted by abuse or trauma and is a viable alternative to traditional room-based help. Your donation will go directly towards providing free access to eligible people in need if unable to access alternative funding.
