“Our most touching experience was when a dying father saw in Maya an opportunity
to engage and cheer up his 10-year-old daughter who was curled up quietly in a chair next to his bed. He rallied to encourage her to interact with the dog, which she did.
Father and daughter shared a smiling moment.”

Health Benefits of Animals for Families


Pets and FamilyAccording to the 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey, around 63% of all USA households (that's about 71.1 million) are pet owners. 39% of all households own at least one dog and 34% households own at least one cat.  These statistics show how widespread and common pets are in families throughout America.

Animals touch the lives of all generations.  These furry beings not only cheer up the stressed and tired parent but they also prove to be excellent companions for your dear child.
