This thread is to post links about other animal species. The idea was formed in the "Horse Auction" thread by Jaytee, because I had mentioned how much therapeutic horseback riding had benefitted me and Siobhan had made a comment about an article that she had written about a therapeutic riding program.

I will also include a link for an organization that helps children and adults, mainly from dysfunctional families but also with a wide range of issues, by utilizing animals as their "therapists". I have no personal knowledge of this program, but am thinking about volunteering there. It is called Animals as Natural Therapy and here is their website:
This thread will be pinned for easy access.
