Welcome to Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas

Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas is a faith-based non-profit organization, which strives to share the love of God through animal-assisted therapy and camelid education among all ages. 

Since 2007, our therapy teams have completed over 1,500 therapeutic and educational visits throughout the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA area, touching the lives of over 10,000 people each year.

During a typical therapy visit, our animals might take a walk with an adolescent child struggling with difficult issues, or motivate a patient recovering from a stroke to reach farther, or calm a child with autism so that she can focus, and achieve new goals. By offering friendship and warm touch, our llamas and alpacas help alleviate loneliness, lower blood pressure, and reduce stress- their presence can bring a sense of normalcy to institutional settings.

We are very proud that our especially sweet llama, Rojo, is ranked as the #1 “Beyond the Showring” PR llama in the world, according to the International Lama Registry, and has been featured in the book, Unlikely Heroes, by best selling author, Jennifer Holland, on the Nat Geo Wild television show, “Unlikely Animal Friends”, Huffpost Live, CNN’s “Vital Signs”, and an article about our therapy program in “O, the Oprah Magazine” (April 2015 issue)! We have been very blessed over the years, by all the love that has been expressed for our animals within our own community, and around the worldwide internet community.
