Teaching Healing Loving

“As a certified pet therapy team, we walk hospital corridors, sit beside anxious children, and offer silent companionship to those who need it most. Daphne’s eyes hold stories—the laughter she’s witnessed, the tears she’s absorbed, and the quiet moments of healing.

We’ve learned that love wears many fur coats. Daphne, with her velvety ears and soulful eyes, reminds us daily: kindness transcends species. And so, we continue our privilege and honor—to touch lives, one paw at a time.

May Daphne’s pawprints forever grace the hearts of those she meets. 🐾❤️” — Rhonda Herbert
