Here is an article about a group that does animal assisted therapy in Malaysia.
NOT many may know this but World Animal Day is observed on Oct 4 every year. On this special day, everyone is encouraged to reflect on the unique bond of friendship that animals share with human beings.
I believe the disabled, the elderly and the sick appreciate the wonderful companionship that animals provide more than anyone else.
Whilst all animals are capable of providing animal-assisted therapy, no animal does this better than dogs. Canines are non-judgmental, highly trainable, obedient and totally devoted to their human companions.
Here is their website.
