How can animals break through the barriers created by traumatic events and help people heal? We’ll learn about horses that interact with people with dementia, and dogs who visit patients in hospitals.
Therapy Animals and Service Dogs:
We’ll also find out how service dogs can improve life for people with disabilities. If you have a story to share about a service animal or a therapeutic interaction with an animal, Joe and Terry invite you to share it. Call 888-472-3366 between 7 and 8 am EDT on March 19, 2016 or email email@example.com
