Have you had it with office life? Do you want a job that is personally rewarding? Are you looking for a calling and not a regular 9 – 5? Then maybe you should consider animal assisted therapy (AAT). Animal assisted therapy is a great field for those who like working with people and animals. It’s also a growing field, as ongoing research into animal-human relationships reveals just how beneficial animals are in virtually every aspect of our lives. For example, animals can be used to combat depression, overcome addiction, lose weight, reach autistic children, improve physical functioning, rehabilitate convicts and teach kids (and adults) how to read.
