Clara Lee spent three decades working with various non-profits, but, until working with GRM, she focused primarily on animal welfare, and the importance of the human-animal bond. With her certified therapy animals, she has spent years visiting hospice and critically ill facilities, seeing how pet therapy can be healing and rehabilitating when time is taken to sit, listen, and talk with patients about their lives, using a well-behaved therapy animal as a way to initiate conversation.
