Kids and Animals
Details: This remarkable special takes viewers on an emotional journey to explore the healing bonds formed between children and animals. Therapists now recognize how effective such relationships can be when kids and animals become an integral part of each other's lives, thriving on the trust and affection that results. Children facing extreme physical or mental challenges in their own lives connect with some unlikely partners - animals as diverse as a sea turtle, horse, pig, cow and porpoise. Their personal stories will make you cry and laugh and fill you with hope as the animals take on the role of therapist in the lives of these exceptional children.
