The Transformative Power of Therapy Animals

Pets provide companionship, but their impact goes far beyond giving their owners a sense of closeness or solidarity. The animals we share our lives with are so much more than friends; they’re important and valued members of our immediate family. We love them because they make us feel good and give our lives meaning. When we reciprocate their unconditional love, we become the best versions of ourselves. Add to this the immense benefits to every aspect of human health and that’s the transformative power of therapy animals.
