“Heartfelt Connections” describes the experiences of people whose lives have been changed tremendously by animals.

In her new book, “Heartfelt Connections: How Animals and People Help One Another” (published by iUniverse), Anne E. Beall, PhD celebrates the life-changing bond between people and animals. As a social psychologist and animal lover, Beall provides unique insight into the dynamics and rewards of having these relationships.

“Heartfelt Connections” describes the experiences of people whose lives have been changed tremendously by animals. With narratives and research about horses who heal, dogs who help children read, cats who save the lives of their owners, and pigs, sheep, ducks and llamas who help reduce stress and lift the spirits of people, Beall shows how animals are in action across the United States at nursing homes, at hospitals and at rehabilitation centers - and are making a difference in the lives of many people.

“Despite the fact that animals and people don’t speak the same language, a tremendous degree of communication occurs between us,” Beall says. “My exploration into this topic has forever changed the way I look at the animals in our world. It has been a tremendous experience, and I wanted to share it with you.”

Beall’s work is not just an informative resource for understanding the interactions between humans and animals, it encourages readers to establish, cherish and make the most out of these “Heartfelt Connections.”
