Purr-fect Cat Healing Vets Program 

Veterans returning from combat often struggle with PTSD or emotional trauma as they transition back to civilian life.

Purr-fect Cat Therapy matches carefully selected Purpose-Bred hypoallergenic cats with veterans in need of therapeutic healing and companionship. We raise Purebred CFA-TICA registered Traditional Siberian Cats. Our Emotional Support Animals are leash trained and at very early age trained to travel. To find out more information about the Siberian cat breed, please Visit our Breeding Program. 


The applicant must understand that an Emotional Support Animal has limited access rights under Fair Housing and the Air Carrier’s Access Act (ACAA), but does not have the same access rights as Service Animals under the ADA Laws.

 

Purr-fect Cat Therapy,  is dedicated to helping veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) by providing them with Companion Therapy Cats at No-Cost - No Worries. We’re honored to help the men and women who so bravely served our country with cats that dramatically improve their quality of life. Cats can help people feel better by providing companionship.
