Pet Therapy


The Jupiter Tequesta Dog Club is proud to have several pet therapy teams among its membership.  These teams are active in the community with visits to hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, the courthouse, schools with reading programs and humane education and more.  This is a labor of love that plays a vital role in improving the lives of some of our community's most vulnerable people.


If you have a registered Therapy Dog and would like to visit with the Jupiter Tequesta Dog Club teams please contact Maureen Parsons at (561) 676-2555 or email her at  



Exams are always stressful but some empathetic therapy dogs made the experience more bearable for some FAU students.  On Monday, October 7, 2019, a number of these amazing therapy dogs took some pressure off the students at "Pet-A-Pup" at the Jupiter Tequesta Dog Club on the FAU Campus in Jupiter.  It's hard to tell who enjoyed it more - the students or the dogs!
