Animal therapy to help 26/11 victims recuperate
When a young girl in India lost her father in the 7/11 Mumbai train blasts, she became a hermit. For 10 months she refused to leave the side of her mother, but then one day she let go of her mother’s side to hug a dog. The child’s mother was astonished and relieved and was now sure that her daughter would come out of the trauma.
Apparently, dogs can sense the emotions and the victims open up to the animals through cuddling, hugging and crying unwept tears, which sets them on the fast track to recovery. It’s absolutely incredible that therapy dogs can help victims of trauma recover and help restore their lives.
The city-based Animal Angels Foundation (AAF) has offered help to victims of the 26/11 carnage in Mumbai. The AAF is the first Indian organization to be registered with an international organization working in the field of animal-assisted therapy.
I just think it’s so astonishing that animals can bring such joy and happiness around the world!!
