Just over a year ago, I wasn't even aware that pet therapy encompassed more than just therapy dogs. Yet over the past year, pursuing a therapy certification with my own rabbit Seamus has been incredibly fulfilling and brought me so many new wonderful experiences.
As a college student who has been on both the giving and receiving ends of pet therapy, I am so appreciative of the impact it has on those in need. As a college freshman, Seamus accompanied me when I lived at school, as an emotional support animal. Now, I am so happy to be able to travel to therapy visits with Seamus as a volunteer for Creature Comfort to share his soft fur and comforting personality with all kinds of people.
