About Us

TheraPets of Indiana, Inc. was founded in 2000 and incorporated in 2004 by Darlene Gosnell of Fishers, Indiana.  As a car accident survivor whose own recovery was aided by a Cairn Terrier, Darlene knows first-hand the benefits of pets interacting with patients.

She formed TheraPets of Indiana to ensure that a therapy pet would be available at all times for anyone in need. What Darlene started with one special Cairn named Molly has now become an organization of 26 dogs, a dynamic Board of Directors and countless volunteers.

Thanks to Darlene and the TheraPets volunteers, hundreds of patients have benefited from their time with dogs that are accepting, comforting and non-judgmental, making them ideal therapy companions. All our therapy dogs undergo extensive training before working with patients.
