PEOPLE WHISPERERS
"The State of the Art of Animals as Healers"

Countless non-human therapists are working incognito as household pets. From 1980 to 2001, the number of dogs and cats in the United States grew from 98 million to 130 million, and North Americans are found to spend nearly three times as much money caring for their pets as the federal government spends on welfare. It is far from uncommon for a person to forego his or her own medical treatment out of cost
considerations, but to write any check necessary to preserve the life and health of a pet. 63 percent of pet owners say “I love you” to their pets daily, and 83 percent refer to themselves as their pet’s “mom” or “dad.” Research shows that we use exactly the same facial expressions and vocal characteristics in speaking to a puppy as we do to a human infant.

Institutions from schools to prisons to nursing homes have long employed dogs, rabbits, birds, and a variety of other species to help people of all ages and disability. There are currently more than 2,000 canine programs and 650 equine-therapy centers in the US alone, and countless others abroad, as the movement did not originate in the US, but in Central Europe. Not only are a large percentage of such centers and their human therapists trained and certified under national guidelines, but numerous not-for-profit organizations exist to ensure the continued quality, credibility, and viability of the field.
