The presence of a non-threatening, gentle therapy dog can help a hospitalized six-year old feel less frightened.
For an isolated elder, sitting quietly with a therapy cat makes a long-term care facility feel more like home and less lonely. For an uncertain second grader, confidence in reading out loud increases when the listener is a calm, comforting therapy rabbit.
