Pet Stories

Our furry and feathered friends bring
so much joy to
our lives. In so many cases,
pets are nothing short of
angels in disguise:
like the wheelchair-bound therapy
dog who
cheers sick children or the stray kitten who

restored one woman’s faith and hope
during a trying time in her life.

Pets are indeed earth angels.
There’s so much we can learn
from them, so read on!
