About  Us

Our Mission 

The purpose of Pets for Life, Inc. is to enhance the care and treatment of people in local hospitals, nursing homes, shelters for domestic violence, mental health programs, treatment centers for youth and corrections facilities through the use of certified therapy teams of pets and 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.  They donated the initial seed money and formed the organization that blossomed into Pets for Life, Inc.
