Hi! I’m Ritamarie Theiler and have long known about the benefit animals bring to our lives. As a teen, I had surgery to correct scoliosis followed by nine months in a body cast. During this time I had many dogs, cats and horses who loved me and helped guide me through the recovery. Without my animals around me, I’m sure this would have been a very depressing and difficult time in my life.
