Act as Furry Therapists

Pet therapy, or animal-assisted therapy (AAT) as it's also called, has been linked to the reduction of anxiety, depression, and pain in people with a range of physical or mental health problems. One study revealed that Alzheimer's patients who owned dogs had fewer anxiety-induced outbursts than Alzheimer's patients without dogs.  Caregivers also report less stress.
