PrizedPals Leverages the Numerous Advantages of Human-Animal Connections for the Benefit of Pet-Care Organizations

PrizedPals is a thought-leader in benefiting mankind, through leveraging one of the most fundamental relationships human beings experience.  European cave paintings illustrate humans have interacted with the animal kingdom for hundreds of centuries.  PrizedPals leverages these bonds, broadening the therapeutic value that people-animal connections nurture in the physical and mental health and overall well-being of each.  Aspects reach beyond the 85 million U.S. households with dogs, cats, birds and horses – to working, herding and barnyard animals.  There are therapy pets that empower quality of life in disaster victims, in people incapacitated by sensory or limb-loss, and with behavioral and cognitive illness.  In fact, pet-human interactions go beyond emotional benefits in enhancing infant immunity to infections, brain chemistry in mental disorders, lowering blood pressure – even predicting seizures and detecting cancer.  To state the obvious, pets are good for people.
