A worldwide overview of

animal assisted services teams



In collaboration with IAHAIO, ICofA created a Map in which all AAS practitioners and their animals can be registered. In this way we can have an overview of active certified teams in AAS, and to organisation if any the team works for.

This map aims to bring AAS practitioners closer, sharing our work with the world and allowing networking within AAS to occur easier and faster.

You can use the map if you are interested in AAS and you would like to know if there is someone active in your country. Perhaps you are also interested in doing an AAS abroad and would like to know what possibilities are out there.
