Did you know that when you pet your animal friend, after three minutes you experience a release of oxytocin in your brain?  This is the hormone that gives you a peaceful sense of well-being.  Your pet gets that same release of oxytocin, too.  Please join our guest speaker, Joy Davy, licensed clinical professional counselor specializing in the human-animal bond and pet grief.  She will explore the unique bond we share with our companion animals.  Q&A to follow presentation.
