There is an amazingly strong bond between animals and people. Animals are accepting, non-threatening and non-judgmental, making it easier for people to open up. Some of the benefits of animal-assisted activities include:

  • Improved fine motor skills

  • Improved balance

  • Increased focus and attention

  • Increased self-esteem and ability to care for oneself

  • Reduced anxiety, grief and isolation

  • Reduced blood pressure, depression, and risk of heart attack or stroke

Because many children, teens and adults enjoy working with animals, animal-assisted therapies and activities can be particularly beneficial for individuals who are resistant to treatment or have difficulty accessing their emotions or expressing themselves in traditional therapies.
