it was nice of them to make the brace, even if they originally considered it a waste of time. animals are always a great marketing tool for kids, and in this case, it's for something they actually need. and who wouldn't want to play w/a bunny in a brace?

What a wonderful story. Once again it should serve as a reminder that whether human or animal, just because we might not fit the definition of perfect that our life isn't valuable, a precious gift from God. We all have a purpose and often touch many lives that we aren't even aware of. Thes types of stories need to flood the desks of directors and managers at every shelter in America.

Great story. We hear about so many other animals used in therapy - kids relate well to animals when they don't always to other people. It's neat they were able to help the bunny and find a way to use that to help the kids.

I once heard of a therapy turtle for a little boy that had down syndrome it was a huge turtle and some one turtle napped him he was also really cool with drawings on his shell. Once the person found out that they had stolen a therapy turtle for a little boy who had down syndrome the person returned the turtle right away and just left it in a pet carrier on the families door step and when they saw him they were so happy there was a note on top of the pet carrier that said sorry I took your turtle but I did not know he was a therapy animal for your son who has down syndrome. I was happy to hear on the news that they got him back and I have never seen a turtle smile before but I swear this one did when he was with that little boy.

This just proves that any animal can be a therapy animal my dog could be cause she always knows when my blood sugar is low or high.
