The most beautiful stories begin by putting a smile on other people's faces.

Gabriela Pernter Volpe decided to set up a Swiss non-profit organisation. The goal is: to support and promote mentally ill children, adolescents and adults as well as cognitively impaired persons in the field of animal-assisted therapy. We are a young and dynamic foundation that actively promotes animal-assisted therapies with a lot of joy and motivation.


The ProTerapia Foundation was established in Basel on 1 July 2021.
