Our Assistants

Each dog has come to Healing Species as a rescued animal. Many had been abused, neglected and thrown out like a piece of trash. Their stories and their ability to bring the lessons to life transform entire classrooms. Our dogs are the living example of overcoming one's past and returning non-violent responses.
