President, Human Animal Link of Oklahoma
Our name, Human Animal Link of Oklahoma Foundation, speaks to the fact that animals and human
beings do form a link with one another for the benefit of both. A non-judgmental force, our pets, can best calm most emotional and physical challenges we might experience. They are quiet in voice,but speak with strength and comfort by presence alone. They are incapable of making false promises as to our welfare. They are forever listening even though we may not make much sense. They offer moments of simple joy and peace,reaching into the minds and hearts to communicate with people who just may have shut out the human factor.How quickly they forget our shortcomings and focus on only our greatest strengths.
You just can't lose with that kind of relationship!
