The Australian Network for the Development of Animal Assisted Therapies, ANDAAT, is an organisation that brings together all the providers of Animal Assisted Therapy, (AAT), promotes the use of Animal Assisted Therapy, and assists those who wish to use, research and study, and work in AAT.

Currently today in Australia the value of Animal Assisted Therapy is slowly being realized, and more and more people, groups and organisations are turning towards the use of AAT, in conjunction with conventional therapies or by itself. AAT is seen as an extra valued added tool to achieve all goals.

Studies, here in Australia and around the world are being undertaken to prove and legitimize AAT and to proclaim the value and importance of its use in our lives.
