“Never Underestimate...The Power of the Paw!”
Every pet owner is aware that interactions with animals can lower stress levels and increase one’s sense of well being.
Coming into contact with Heeling Friends’ animal assisted therapy programs in Routt County, many individuals in hospitals, elementary school and senior centers feel comfort.
Our visits enhance the healing processes for trauma (physical and psychological), lessen anxiety and stress, decrease the sense of alienation, provide a friendly diversion and bring smiles and communication (verbal and nonverbal).
With every visit at the hospital,
an encounter with a student,
or a senior citizen……
Heeling Friends’ indispensable mission
is to bring comfort and smiles to all.
