Our planet’s ecosystems are made up of people, plants, and animals supporting one another to survive. Humans benefit by using animals for food, clothing, and other resources. Animals also provide us with companionship, love, and security. Service pets assist people with disabilities: guide dogs help people who are blind navigate their environment and hearing dogs can alert people who are deaf to specific sounds. Therapy animals provide comfort to people experiencing challenges, such as hospital stays or other stressful situations. Animals even help rescue lost people and discover tumors. Discover all the amazing ways animals help humans and how you can help animals, too.
