Sometimes the hype overwhelms the facts, but that’s not the case with the story of Amazing Maisey, who will be at the Edmond Library on Wednesday, July 18, beginning at 7:00p.m.
Maisey and her friend Steve Webster enjoy bringing pleasure to others when they visit hospitals, hospices, senior centers, schools and libraries. They are part of H.A.L.O., Human Animal Link of Oklahoma. Maisey is Steve’s Golden Retriever and her visits always bring hope and inspiration to those who enjoy her company. You see, Maisey is blind.
“H.A.L.O. is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping others through the healing of animals,” said Edmond librarian Carol Hunter. “It’s amazing how stress, worry, and even pain can be lessened by the affectionate and non-judgmental presence of a loving animal.”
Everyone is invited to this free program. Find out more about H.A.L.O. and hear Maisey’s remarkable story. Every day can use a little brightening.
