I created this design to show some of the “pets” that are used in pet therapy….horses, cats, dogs, turtles, rabbits, birds… There are so many types of animals that have been used in pet therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, Autism, monitoring individuals who experience seizures and a host of other things. Then you have the working breeds that perform very well as service dogs for those that are blind, deaf, or wheelchair bound.
I believe this design also reflects happiness and a desire to serve. Just as in all people don’t have the ability to be care takers, not all pets are ideal as pet therapists. There is something unique about a pet therapist that sets it apart from others. They have an electrifying, energizing, and calming presence.
