Therapy dogs and cats offer a vital benefit to all they come in contact with: friendship. These cuddly creatures often provide comfort to people in hospitals, nursing homes, mental institutions and disaster areas. Studies show that having a furry friend around can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels and overall feelings of loneliness. If scientific evidence isn't enough, the smiles of the people these animals touch is proof of a job well done.
