American Human Association

According to the American Humane Association, humans and animals share a bond and animals have “been a source of solace and relief for those who suffer from physical or emotional pain […] Animal-Assisted Therapy has been shown to help children who have experienced abuse or neglect, patients undergoing chemotherapy or other difficult medical treatments, and veterans and their families who are struggling to cope with the effects of wartime military service.” (source)

The Mayo Clinic

Likewise, The Mayo Clinic has also recognized the benefits of AAT, stating that “Animal-assisted therapy can significantly reduce pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue in people with a range of health problems.” (source)
