HEALING 

WITH ANIMALS 

Did you know animals can help 

with anxiety, depression, grief 

and 

other mental health issues ?  


WHAT IS HEALING WITH ANIMALS ??

Pet therapy is a broad term that includes animal-assisted therapy 

and other animal-assisted activities. 

Animal-assisted therapy is a growing field that uses dogs or other animals to help people recover from or better cope with health problems, such as heart disease, cancer

and mental health disorders, like anxiety and depression.

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) has been shown to reduce blood pressure 

in healthy and hypertensive patients.

 It reduces anxiety in hospitalized patients, too

IF YOU CANT ADOPT..... 


HOW ABOUT BEING A FOSTER ?    

Fostering animals is, simply put, saving lives. 

When you become a foster parent, you volunteer to keep a homeless pet in your home temporarily until they go to a forever home.


Fostering increases an animal’s chance of getting adopted. Foster families are usually the first to find out about the pet’s personality. 

You may even be the first to teach your foster pet 

basic house manners, making them more appealing to potential adopters.

My Speech about Rescue and Adoption at 

International American Women of Service Nationals 


OF COURSE TEDDY WAS PART OF IT !!!!



MAINE 6 – 8 DAYS

MASSACHUSETTS 7 DAYS

RHODE ISLAND 5 DAYS

SOME STATES 72 HOURS


• PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU ARE A DOG LOVER OR CAT LOVER.

• NOW IMAGINE THIS WHOLE ROOM PACKED WITH ADORABLE DOGS AND CATS.

• BUT NOW IMAGINE, THAT ALL THOSE ANIMALS WILL BE EUTHANIZED.

• THE STATES AND DAYS I STARTED WITH ARE THE MINIMUM HOLDING DAYS BEFORE EUTHANIZATION .

• THAT’S THE REALITY FOR SOME DOGS’ AND CATS’ LIVES WITHOUT ADOPTION.


• I’VE SEEN AND EXPERIENCED FIRST-HAND THE BENEFITS OF ADOPTION THROUGH BEING A FOSTER FAILURE, AS MY HUSBAND CALLS ME 😊 

 AND ADOPTING FROM THE DIFFERENT RESCUES MY FOUNDATION SUPPORTS.


• TODAY I AM GOING SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO CAN’T SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

• MEET TEDDY !

• RESCUED FROM HOARDING PUPPY MILL IN KENTUCKY, AND CAME INTO FOHARI, 

THAT I VOLUNTEER FOR…. 

HE IS 11 YRS OLD, 4LBS…KEPT IN A CRATE AT ALL TIMES FOR BREEDING, LIVING IN HIS OWN WASTE 24/7…. I OF COURSE JUMPED AT THE CHANCE TO HELP THIS NUGGET, 

FOSTER FAILURE # ????? LOL

• HE IS NOW TEDDY CASADOR – SACCOCCIO


• RESCUE AND ADOPT SENIORS… THEY ARE HOUSEBROKEN, PAST THE DESTRUCTIVE PUPPY STAGE, ALREADY SPAYED OR NEUTERED, SOCIALIZED, MORE CALM 

AND YOU ARE SAVING THEIR LIFE.

• THERE ARE AROUND 14,000 SHELTERS AND RESCUE GROUPS IN THE US, 

ALL OF THEM OVER CROWDED

ABOUT 30% OF ANIMALS IN SHELTERS ARE LEFT THERE BY THEIR OWNERS.

• EVERY YEAR, 6.5 MILLION ANIMALS ENTER SHELTERS –

• CURRENTLY, 1.5 MILLION A YEAR YEAR,

 ABOUT 4,000 A DAY ….ARE EUTHANIZED BECAUSE THEY HAVE REACHED THEIR TIME LIMIT WHEN SHELTERS REACH CAPACITY.

EVEN THOUGH THAT MAY SEEM LIKE A SHOCKINGLY HIGH NUMBER, 

IT ACTUALLY REPRESENTS A DECLINE SINCE A DECADE AGO. 

 IN 2009, IT WAS 3.7 MILLION, 2012 2.6 MILLION

• 9 OUT OF 10 ARE ADOPTABLE

• UNLESS SPAYED, IN 6 YEARS’ TIME, A FEMALE DOG AND HER OFFSPRINGS CAN PRODUCE AROUND 67,000 PUPPIES.

PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER!!!


IF YOU MUST BUY …. PLEASE BUY FROM REPUTABLE, LICENSED BREEDERS….. 

ASK TO SEE A CONTRACT, REFERENCES FROM PAST CLIENTS 

AND SPEAK TO THE VETERINARIANS THEY USE.


ANY WAY YOU DO IT, THINK REAL HARD, KNOW THE RESPONSIBILITY IS FOR ATLEAST 16 YEARS OR THE LIFE OF THE PET….. 

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE, TO ALL OF A SUDDEN GET DUMPED IN A STRANGE, COLD PLACE, 

BECAUSE YOUR FAMILY DECIDED YOU WERE TOO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THEIR LIFESTYLE ?????


THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME…
