Service without Paws: Animal Assisted Therapy

What qualities come to mind when you think of those who serve others?  How about altruism?  Intuitive interest?  Selflessness? Maybe you think of enthusiasm, determination, and action.  The therapy dogs in our area, along with their dedicated human partners, embody all of these qualities along with a myriad of others.   Bonded and sharing a common goal, area teams ease the suffering and anxiety of the youngest to the oldest among us.
