Mary, daughter of Bonnie Lace, will help a bed-ridden resident by lifting a cat up or getting a dog to stand up for a visit. The shelter animals enjoy their time out and the residents enjoy the animals. After her pet therapy visits, Mary returns to the shelter to socialize and play with the other animals.

After seeing a Purina commercial about animals in shelters, Cady Arruda, 10, of Westport, Mass., was concerned and wanted to do something to help the animals. Cady, daughter of Yvette Arruda, sculpted animals out of clay, attached pins and mounted them on cards. She sold them and gave the proceeds to local animal shelters. With her growing pin business, Barnyard Benefits, Cady has donated hundreds of dollars to local horse rescue organizations and shelters that house dogs and cats.
