We all understand the vital role of a seeing-eye dog. What about an emotional support horse?

Today on The Truth, Steve Wayland, Program Director for PAWS/LA, explains the various types of support animals and the vital role they play in the lives of their owners. We laugh when we hear stories of miniature ponies relieving themselves on planes, or when neighbors bicker over a pot-bellied pig, but Wayland reminds us that the companionship of these animals feels truly essential to their owners’ well-being.

It’s a topic worth investigating deeper and viewing through the most compassionate lens you can muster.
