Our Wednesday team meeting this week was an emotional session with the staff sharing personal stories and celebrating the Human and Animal Bond. We read some lovely stories from Marty Becker’s Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul, and Dr. Kaufman showed us some moving videos on the importance of animals to humans both today and throughout history (a couple of videos are attached below). We talked about service dogs, rescue dogs, hospital visiting dogs and cats, and dogs used to help soldiers with PTSD and Youth in correctional facilities. We are all lucky to share the planet with these amazing beings and today we celebrate them. What special bond do you have with your pet family members?
