Great article,thanks. I volunteer at 2 shelters and walking those dogs is so rewarding,especially taking them to the beach and buying them an ice-cream...it's priceless!!! Then off course i come home to my awesome 11 furry friends all waiting at the door as i open it and that too is priceless!!! All my furry kids are from shelters and 2 are seniors and 1 Diebetic. Animals in shelters,especially the seniors or special needs ones are such loving sweeties who just need someone to care and love them!!!! I wish people would just give them a chance...

I remember a store I read around 2 years ago: A man adopted a Cocker in a shelter. 15 says later he and the dog, were in his car when they suffered an accident. The truck fell down a ravine and remained out of sight for those on the road. The man was stuck in the car, but was able to free the dog that ran back home to find help. A neighbor saw the dog and on following him, found the man who was up side down. When 911 arrived, his blood pressure was dangerously low. If it wasn't for the dog - that he had saved a few days earlier, he'd have die.

So, yes, animals can definitely save our lives in many different ways.
