I have been an admirer of the work being done at Animal Assisted Happiness for a long time. As often as I can, I champion the work that they do by promoting them to organizations I belong to that give out grants or by simply adding them to my Amazon smile account so that they can receive small contributions for every dollar I spend through Amazon. I have also had the opportunity to directly see the work that they do impact the lives of children. AAH brought their animal to a school that I once worked at and the joy that it brought to both the students and the staff was palpable. I was so happy to connect with Christine, the AAH operations manager, who attended our recent grand re-opening celebration. With her help, we were able to schedule 2 visits at our clinic.
We had our first visit last week, on March 28th. They brought three bunnies, a ginny pig, and a CHICKEN! It was such a joy to hold them, pet them, and interact with everyone who also came to meet the animals. I certainly enjoyed having them for a visit and felt calmer and happier after they left. Their mission is to provide a million smiles. They can definitely add me to their smile count because I was certainly smiling afterwards!
You won't want to miss our next visit which is planned for May 24th at 2:30-3:30! Stop by after your kids get out of school. If you want to reserve a space at their next visit please sign up on our events page.
