The Island Dolphin Care Mission Statement

To provide unique, animal-assisted (dolphin), motivational, and educational programs to children, adults with special needs, and their families and caregivers. Through interactive programs, education, and research, participants are inspired to value and respect marine mammals and their environment.

More than ever, it is our hope that we can provide programs and experiences that bring Joy to the clients and families who need it most. Our goal is to provide unique, motivational, and educational animal-assisted programs for children and adults with special needs and abilities. Beyond this, we strive to provide the best life possible for our co-therapists – the eight dolphins that call Island Dolphin Care home. 

With your help, we can fulfill this mission and make a meaningful impact in the lives of both people and dolphins alike.
