Sometimes, animals understand pain better than humans do. When a human and an animal connect, an inseparable bond is created between them which exceeds even the bond that humans share.
Animal therapy works wonders on physical and mental disabilities. Especially dog therapy, which makes victims forget their pain when dogs play with them. Here are some pictures from around the world that show you just how wonderfully animal therapy works.
