Emotional Support Animal Care; Spay/Neuter Program:
Research endorses the benefits of positive social interaction with a pet (Emotional Support Animal). These benefits include calming and relaxing the individual, lowering anxiety, alleviating loneliness, enhancing social engagement and interaction, sense of purpose and reduced depression. In fact, many individuals with pets will identify needing to care for their pet as a mitigating factor to prevent suicide or self-harm. Many of our members who meet the criteria for emotional support animals struggle with the financial demands of caring for the pet properly. This fund would assist with spaying and neutering, veterinarian care and shots for the member’s emotional support animals.
