David Frei of Angel on a Leash was in Chicago for a very special reason. He explains on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio, that Angel on a Leash is partnering with our own Rainbow Animal Assisted Therapy and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Listen HERE.
Dave talks about animal assisted, and what it is….and the difference – sometimes life-changing that animal assisted therapy can make.
I challenged David to tell a story, offer a personal anecdote – since he does animal assisted therapy himself. His story is indeed quite touching. But truly anyone can, if you do animal assisted therapy long enough, tell a similar sort of story because these miracles happen daily.
But what makes a dog a really good therapy dog? We talk about it.
I talk about Governor Pat Quinn’s support for animal welfare, and as a result Illinois is America’s most humane state. And David recalls his meeting with our Governor, and how impressed he was with a dog named Uno (past Westminster Champion).
