Along with the horses we have 34 dogs at the Centaur Hippotherapy center. They all are rescued dogs and are involved in the animal therapy with handicapped children. It is not an easy job to keep them all, especially in our not very active months. Now you have an opportunity to “adopt” a dog at our center and take part in its care paying from just 40 USD (15 000 AMD) for a whole year. “Dog parents” get benefits including:
Great emotional satisfaction you always get when helping those in need
Personalized adoption certificate for your chosen dog
Detailed information about your adopted dog
Your name as of a “parent “on our website
An opportunity to visit “your” dog, play and walk with him.
If you live abroad you will get updates on “your” dog virtually through photo stories.
Dog Parent adoption makes a perfect gift for your animal loving friends and family – it is unique, easy to purchase and does not even need to be wrapped!
Research has shown that pet ownership has many physical, mental, emotional and social benefits. Pet owners are generally healthier and happier than non-pet owners. They have lower blood pressure and cholesterol; are less depressed; feel less lonely than non-pet owners. Growing up with a dog (and other pets to a lesser extent) during infancy may help to strengthen the immune system and may reduce the risk of allergies
Some dogs live with us permanently, some are available for adoption. Please visit the Dogs page for their profiles. Each profile includes all information about the individual animal. For adoption please contact us on phone or via e-mail.
Once contacted you can visit our place and meet the dog you picked in person. You will need to provide us with the information on conditions and the place you are going to keep the dog in. You need to ensure that you can provide the right environment to keep your new family member happy. Please note that we always check the place the dog is going to live in and take care about getting the dog to your place. You will also need to provide us with your passport copy and sign a contract. Our adoption contract includes a clause that if the dog needs re-homing at any time in its life, we are to be contacted and the dog returned to us.
After the contract is approved we offer you a 2 week trial. If everything goes well on that period then you can adopt the dog.
In the frames of “Sponsor a Horse, Support a Child” project designed for the handicapped children Centaur Hippotherapy Center offers you to sponsor one horse’s year fodder thus supporting free hippotherapy sessions for 8 children throughout that year. Priority will be given to those aged from 0 to 18 living in villages and socially poor families.
Each child will have an opportunity to take 3 months course of hippotherapy, 2 sessions a week, with the duration of about an hour each.
This way you help solve two big issues: you provide a horse with a year fodder and give the children an opportunity to dramatically improve their physical and mental health. The horse you sponsor a year fodder of is used for many other children, so they also benefit from your sponsoring a horse.
Benefits the Sponsor Gets
The sponsoring company’s or individual’ name will be mentioned with gratitude on the horse’s box, on our website, our group on Facebook and in Media.
The sponsoring company’s staff will get an opportunity to spend a day at our horses communicating with them and doing horse walk 2 times in a year.
The sponsoring company or individual will get a detailed report on the child’s improvement.
