Renewal of Therapy Birds' Room with Soundproof

by NPO Japan Animal Therapy Association Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit Site Visit Verified

Summary

We'd like to make our birds' room with soundproof. We have more than 20 therapy birds. The training is almost done and now we are waiting the opportunity to start birds therapy formally. Birds cry is high tone, and if 20 birds get together and cry all at once, the sound become just "noise" without soundproof. It is hard to ask birds like "Please stop crying!", control of cry is so hard for birds not same as dogs. If we could have a room with soundproof, the noise problem is solved.

Challenge

In Japan, especially in urban area, buildings are closely surrounded by each other, and if we'd like to make birds' therapy room, the next house is too close and to have many birds is difficult for the noise problem. For that reason, though we want to train birds at the same place, we divine them to 3 groups and train in the different places to spread the "noise". We'd like to make soundproof room for birds training, but it cost too much for us and is difficult.

Solution

We will offer the opportunity anyone can interact with our well-trained therapy birds. Yamato-city, where the birds will live, is not too far from the center of Japan, such as Tokyo, Shinjuku, and many living there have much stress for their jobs, human relationships etc. Also we knew there are many people who suffer from pet loss of birds and who want to interact with birds, but there is very little opportunity. The birds' room will be the oasis for all of such people.

Long-Term Impact

It would be better to train birds at the same place to make them better friends, and reduce the personnel expense for taking care of birds. As we do animal assisted therapy by dogs, we knew birds therapy also has big potential to heal the people's hearts same as dogs. In Japan, there many people who have mental illness and need to have relax time.We believe we would offer good relaxation oasis for them through birds therapy same as dogs' one.
