Therapy animals helping first responders deal with stress

Kylie and Daisy are just two of KPets nearly 500 service animals, helping people in various circumstances across our area.

"This type of thing, they're experiencing all sorts of stress and trauma and they just need something for their minds to relax and calm down. So, the dogs have a therapeutic effect on them and I think it's becoming more and more aware that they need self care for themselves," KPets founder Karen Gerth said.
