Helping Humans and Animals Connect

Transforming trauma through love and play

WHAT WE DO

The Human-Animal Connection is a non-profit organization that brings people and therapy animals together for the benefit of both. The program is free for Veterans, Active Duty, First Responders, Health Care Providers and anyone feeling stress in the line of duty. These therapeutic interactions relieve stress, restore resilience and increase enthusiasm for life. This work has been presented to over 4,000 Service members.

OUR METHOD

We believe that honoring Animal Wisdom makes us better humans.   
We have developed practical, trainable methods of intuitive and empathic communication between people and animals for the well-being of both species.

The animals choose if or how they will interact so that the experience will be as beneficial to the animal as to the person.

LATEST FROM OUR BLOG

Our work with animals has shown us that trauma can be transformed. 
And that we are not solely defined by the events that happened in our lives.

WHAT THEY SAY

When we did the communicating with the horses -- it was like something I've wanted to experience my whole life.  Now I know I can.

This feeling of love with horses, flowing like a river. It's life changing.

Learning how to enter the horse's world has changed me in some very deep way. It is like falling in love - but better. It is like coming home.

The horses open your heart. It is better than years of therapy.
