In brief: Yes.
Both locally and in residential programs, there are a number of opportunities for therapy involving the care, training and enjoyment of animals.
For example, equine therapy, training seeing-eye dogs, raising a calf or lamb, etc. And of course, with the right animal and the right mentor, interactions with animals can be healthy for a child, without a formal "therapy" program.
