What People Are Saying...

"Many who know me, know I'm skeptical of anything other than science; this class was not what I expected! It truly helped me connect more with myself and, in turn, the animals. I highly recommend it for anyone who works in rescue and sanctuary work, and really anyone with animal companions in their life! If I invited you, it is because I think you will benefit from and enjoy this class!" ~ Josh, director Cotton Branch Farm Animal Sanctuary
