About  Us

Our Mission 

The mission of Pets for Life, Inc. is to enhance the physical well-being and emotional health of people in need through interactive visits with our certified therapy teams of pets and their human volunteers.

How We Began

In 1984, the husband and wife team of William D. and Harriett M. Snyder were inspired by a "60 Minutes" telecast about the benefits of animals for the elderly.  They felt such a program would be a valuable and much needed service for the metropolitan Kansas City community.  The Snyders donated the initial seed money and formed the organization that blossomed into Pets for Life, Inc.
