Healing power of animals
When I was a child, I often experienced first-hand the healing power of animals.
Sign the pledge today to support animal-assisted therapy programs!
The healing power of animals extends beyond everyday woes. Ten-year-old Laura* was the victim of sexual and emotional abuse. After being removed from her unsafe home, the emotional scars from her ordeal took a toll and she was placed in a mental health program. Her difficult road to healing began with the support of another specialist trained in such matters - a dog named Rigo!
During Laura's counseling, her trust in Rigo grew steadily. And one day, a breakthrough occurred. With her arms wrapped around Rigo for comfort and security, Laura whispered in his ear, describing in graphic detail her horror of abuse.
Operating as a program of American Humane Association, Denver Pet Partners provides animal-assisted activities and animal-assisted therapy to clients such as hospitals, long-term care facilities, hospice, schools, mental health centers and more.
These programs are beneficial to everyone involved. Sign the petition today to pledge your support for animal-assisted therapy programs like Denver Pet Partners!
Thank you for showing your support today.
Sincerely,Animals can help children with histories of abuse and neglect to heal and live a happy life.
