    Our topic this week is... THERAPY ANIMALS!  Over here at Rescue Coffee we're still celebrating National Pet Month (but lets face it, every month is pet month). Our pets play a special role in our lives, but the work of therapy animals and the special bond between pet and owner is particularly amazing.    Anyone who’s had a pet knows how much their furry friend improves their quality of life.

    The Truth About Pit Bulls

    Of all  dogs, Pit Bulls in particular seem to be a very polarizing topic. Whether you love them or hate them, most people seem to have an opinion on the breed.
