Social Intervention Area

In the Department we develop our Animal Assisted Intervention Program (IAA), by working at a cognitive, physical, social and / or emotional level with the main objective of improving the quality of life of people with functional diversity and/or  at risk of psychosocial exclusion. We focus our work through a multidisciplinary team, with psychologists, physiotherapists, social educators and experts in canine education, who work alongside educated and socialized animals for correct functioning in each intervention. Based on the diagnosis and based on the objectives agreed to between the professionals of the different centers in which we work, a plan of sessions designed to achieve these objectives is designed. As an innovative element, we have introduced a novel therapy with raptors into the IAA program.

Caforta Torre-Veleta

The organizational maturity of the Canis Majoris Foundation and the increase in the demand for care have made it necessary to create a specialized facility called the Center for Training and Assisted Animal Therapy (hereinafter CAFORTA), from where current care programs are directed, centralized and developed and new ones created. We are currently working on-site toward turning this dream into reality.
