We are a non-profit organization supporting Animal Assisted Interventions (AAIs)


Animal Assisted Intervention International is a member driven non-profit organization that offers a community, continuing education, standards of practice, competencies and accreditation for AAI practitioners and animal trainers

AAII Standards of Practice

AAII Standards of Practice are the result of our member working groups ideas, peer reviewed literature reviews and concepts that AAII believes important for AAIs including each category of animal assisted activities, animal assisted therapy, animal assisted education and animal support handlers, trainers and instructors.

They have been designed to provide guidance as a minimum of what is needed to conduct an AAI program for Animal Assisted Intervention International (AAII) members. They are meant to be used in conjunction with AAII competencies and as partial preparation for AAII accreditation.
