Now Gunner and Sammy will be helping a whole new group of people who can benefit from the love and connection with an animal. "My hope is that Sammy and Gunner, who were rescued from sadness and trauma, will touch the lives of others who are also suffering," Hart told The Dodo.
Albrecht is applying for grants so that the program can be free for participants, because she knows just how priceless a connection with an animal can be. Even her own daughter benefits from the therapeutic riding program at the ranch.
“People say animals don’t talk,” Albrecht said. “But I say, ‘Yes they do.’”
