Samsung donates to local Therapet foundation

Therapet volunteers, animals, ETMC staff and patients joined representatives of Samsung Electronics today at ETMC to celebrate Samsung's donation of $10,000 to the Therapet Animal Assisted Therapy Foundation.

Based in the Tyler area, Therapet is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating the use of animals in the healing and rehabilitation of acute and chronically ill individuals.

Therapet currently serves several medical facilities in the East Texas region, including East Texas Medical Center, and pediatric rehabilitation camps for children with asthma, diabetes and vision impairments.
