Animals have a tremendous impact on our lives. They are our companions, our police and our helpers; sometimes even more. Most people are fortunate to see a working dog and have a small taste of just how important a service dog, cat, horse or bunny or most any animals can be. Sometimes were do not realize just how many different ways they can help us live through the most horrible and heart wrenching times in our lives.
In the most recent issue of Pet Partners Interactions Magazine (www.petpartners.org) we can read the story of Brad Cole and Spartacus. Spartacus is an Akita were one of the first teams to arrive in Newtown following that terrible day at Sandy Hook School. They stayed on to continue helping for some time. They helped children, parents suddenly without a child, first responder’s teachers and clergy all trying to make sense of the terrible act which had happened in their school and town.
Animal assisted therapy is quickly becoming a new and widely used tool in helping people in many different situations. Looking at this magazine we can see applications within our own community and maybe even with our own pets. The most important is to see that with little help from an animal many people can live independently and be productive members of our communities.
