ANIMAL THERAPY GUEST SPEAKER:
NANCY STANLEY & TRUFFLES

My mom just cleaned my teeth. I know it looks like I'm mean; but I am just showing you how clean and white they are. It's important that we keep our teeth clean from plaque . It gives us a really nice breath and it keeps us healthy. I really don't like that birthday hat too much.

These are some of the people I visit. There is sure a lot of love being exchanged here. The beautiful Elderly lady in the photo is 100 years old. I really love her so much. Being with all these children and the Elderly makes my world a better place and I have a feeling I'll be doing this until I'm old and gray. I'm not sure chocolate poodles get gray !!!

Guest Speaking And Fun!

Nancy and Truffles have the awesome ability to “talk” to children on an unbiased level through a language of love that they’ll understand. Truffles makes children feel better about themselves because he doesn’t judge and he just wants to put a smile on a child’s face. Truffles, through his unconditional love, encourages others to help those who are less fortunate in their communities to make the world a better place.


​WHAT IS PET THERAPY (OR ANIMAL THERAPY)


Pet Therapy is a type of therapy that involves an animal with specific characteristics...  a calm demeanor, gentle disposition, and friendliness to strangers, among others. Animal therapy is designed to improve the physical, social, emotional, and/or cognitive functioning of an individual, as well as provide educational and motivational effectiveness. The purpose of animal therapy is to help someone recover from or cope with a
health problem or mental disorder, a need for unconditional love and to bring joy to those who need special attention.


Benifets of Animal Therapy


Animal therapy builds on the pre-existing human-animal bond. Interacting with a friendly animal can help many physical and mental issues. Animal therapy can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also increase self-esteem and improve social skills.

Animal Therapy Pioneer, Nancy Stanley, and her therapy dog extraordinaire, Truffles, would love to come to your school for a special presentation about animal therapy.

Nancy and Truffles are on a mission to teach children that love makes the world a better place.
