Anyone who’s ever owned a pet could testify that animals can be incredible gifts to people’s lives. This is why AARP held a special contest: AARP’s Most Heroic Pet Contest [1], and a winner has been crowned.
Magic, a blue-eyed miniature horse that visits hospitals, hospices and assited-living programs, has changed a number of people’s lives. And she truly seems to be magic! She was with a man when he woke up from a coma, is a good friend to an 8-year old girl who had a heart trasplant and is now fighting leukemia, and literally sparked a mute woman to speak for the first time in 3 years!
Check out [1]Magic’s amazing stories and all of the other heroic pets that people submitted; it’s quite touching!
