Welcome to Animal Connection News Online, your online source for information about animal communication and the messages our animals want to share with us.

With the start of the New Year, I’d like to thank all of you for your wonderful support and help in passing along the word about how special our animals are. Whether you are a breeder, foster home, a rescuer or a person who has made a loving home for an animal, you are doing wonderful work for the animals. Animal communication is something that has been part of my life for many, many years and I feel blessed to be able to share with you the messages that our animals want to share with us.

Our family is looking forward to 2018, as we call 2017 our year of replacement parts, as my husband, Jay, had 2 hips replaced and I had my knee replaced. So we are looking forward to a year of feeling much better and being grateful that we live in the time that we do where replacement parts have become so successful.

From our family to yours, we wish you and your human and animal family all the best for this coming year.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
Communication Helps Rescued Animals

Before I begin this article about communicating with rescued animals, I want to thank all of you who are involved in the rescue process. Thanks to those who foster rescues, work for rescue organizations and of course, those who provide those rescues their forever home.

Over the years, Animal Connection has also been asked to help rescued animals where a communication session would help. I’ve found when working with animals who have been abused, abandoned or even given up by their family when there was no other choice, their lives are can be marred by this event. Many animals cannot get past this and their emotions show through bad behavior or being withdrawn or depressed.

Animal Connection has helped many animals with these types of issues. By having the opportunity to tell someone about their past, these animals are able to put the sad part of their life behind them and move on.  It’s similar to when you speak to a friend about a problem and feel so much better after getting the issue off your chest.

Many people see the value in allowing their animals to talk about their problems as one of the ways to move on with their life and heal.  Of course, loving people who can teach the animal how to trust again are without a doubt necessary too.

Some time ago, I heard about a beautiful Bishon named Teddy Bear. Lynne R. from Monroeville, PA was involved in Bishon Rescue and had taken Teddy in to find him a new home after the man in his family passed away and the woman was put into a nursing home.  Teddy was going through some emotional times and this was shown by him chewing on his leg until it was raw.

When communicating with Teddy, I found out that he was in a terrible state of depression and grieving over the loss of his family.  He didn’t understand why his life had changed so drastically and why the people he loved were taken away from him.  Teddy’s emotions just poured from him as he told me how sad he was at the loss of his family.  After giving him all the time he needed to tell his side of things, I explained all the circumstances to Teddy, including the fact that Lynne was going to find him a new and loving home.  I could feel him start to relax.  This was the start of his healing. However, the situation was far from resolved. It took many months of loving care and understanding from Lynne before Teddy was ready to be placed in a new home.  At that point, Teddy was a very happy dog who was appreciated and loved by his new family.

And then there was Khaptain Khaveman+, a beautiful Arabian horse. Khaptain had, at one time, been a seasoned, successful show horse. But before Karen C. of Stafford, VA rescued him, he was abandoned in an old barn with barely any care, including food and water.

When Animal Connection communicated with him, he did not want to place blame on the people who treated him so poorly. Khaptain just wanted to move on. I encouraged him to tell me about his past, as I knew this would help him look toward the future. Khaptain said that the reason he would tell me about what happened to him was that he realized Karen and I were trying to help him and it was not just idle curiosity.

With loving care and understanding from Karen, Khaptain went on to show again and even receive the Legion of Honor award. Her love and devotion helped Khaptain return to the life he so deserved.

And finally, there was Doodle, a 3year old beautiful brown tabby cat rescue, who belongs to Bonnie L.’s family in Chesapeake, VA.  Bonnie worked with cat rescue and also Great Dane rescue, however, when Doodle came into her care, she just couldn’t let him go.

Bonnie thought that Doodle was very unhappy. As a kitten, he had been playful and friendly but he was now aloof, even to the point of not eating if someone was in the same room. And he rarely liked to be touched. Of course, Bonnie was concerned because she felt that Doodle could have a much better life if he allowed his human family to get closer to him.

In communicating with Doodle, I found out that Doodle didn’t feel unhappy, so much as he felt disappointed.  He saw kittens coming in and out of Bonnie’s home as part of her rescue efforts but no one chose him. Doodle felt that no one wanted him.

I explained to Doodle that he was so special that Bonnie kept him to be part of her family.  Doodle seemed so surprised by this, as he had always considered he was not good enough to move on and didn’t realize this was his permanent home.

After our communication session, Bonnie let me know that Doodle was trying hard to make changes. He was now allowing her to pet him and was out among the rest of the family. After putting this misunderstanding aside, Doodle continued to make progress through the love of his family.

So as you can see, animal communication can help our animal companions to accept the changes in their lives and continue on with loving and fulfilling lives. And thanks to all of you who are involved in the animal rescue effort. With your love and devotion, so many animals benefit and make our world a better place to live.

Customer Comments

Susan B. of Fairport, NY… Thanks Danielle.  It’s a comfort to know that Josie is fine with me going away.  Also, your talk with her about the IPad  seemed to help. Last night she crawled up on the back of the couch ( under a blanket) and slept there.  That’s the closest she’s come in a while.  So hopefully you eased her fears.  Your sessions always seem to ease my mind.  Thanks again.

From Lauren E. of Johannesburg, North Africa… Thank you so much for the reading. It was very comforting knowing that Tyson is happy and at peace. He really is a special soul and I’m glad you got to meet him. Thanks again for your help. It definitely provides a step forward for my husband and I as we mourn his loss.

From Tustin, CA… I am so so so happy and thankful for what you do.  After reading the report about Duncan, I became so happy, as everything you said seemed to be spot on.  I was so amazed at your gift that I kept rereading your communication with Duncan.  I am writing this before I go to the barn to see Duncan so I am unaware on how he is handling himself after talking to you, but regardless I already feel closer and more understanding of Duncan.  I simply cannot thank you enough!  Thank you again.  This has truly been an experience to remember!!

Justine M. of San Francisco, CA… Danielle, thank you so much!  It was very emotional to hear what Max and Maddie had to say and I feel so much closer to them both.  Maddie is very astute about kittens!  My reservation about adding a kitten to the family has been that the high energy may not be loved by Maddie in her later years as she’s not feeling well, so I was surprised to hear that she has the same worry!  A lot to consider. And it was so comforting to hear that Max is well and that he does visit.  I will try and stay more open. Many thanks again.

From Debbi R. of Novi, MI… Thank you Danielle.  This reading has given me an entirely different perspective of beautiful Karma’s soul and personality. I really appreciate it. Bless you.

From Myra M. of Laguna Niguel, CA… Thank you so much for working us into your schedule on such short notice.  Buddy's words, although breaking my heart, need to be honored.  Now I understand that he just wants to be left in peace.  A giant part of me wants to continue to fight for him, but then I reread his words and say, OK, we will just spend time loving and saying goodbye. Again, thank you for helping me understand his wishes.

A wife says to her husband one weekend morning, "We've got such a clever dog. He brings in the daily newspapers every morning." Her husband replies, "Well, lots of dogs can do that." The wife responded, "But we've never subscribed to any!"


During break time at obedience school, two dogs were talking. One said to the other..."The thing I hate about obedience school is you learn ALL this stuff you will never use in the real world."

A Good Laugh

With the Super Bowl coming up in early February, we thought this joke about the Animal Super Bowl was pretty timely. I know I publish this each year, but it sure is cute.

During the Super Bowl, there was another football game of note between the big animals and the little animals. The big animals were crushing little animals and at half-time. The coach made a passionate speech to rally the little animals.

At the start of the second half the big animals had the ball. On the first play, the elephant got stopped for no gain. On the second play, the rhino was stopped for no gain. On the third down, the hippo was thrown for a 5 yard loss.

The defense huddled around the coach and he asked excitedly, "Who stopped the elephant?"

"I did," said the centipede.

"Who stopped the rhino?"

"Uh, that was me too," said the centipede.

"And how about the hippo? Who hit him for a 5 yard loss?"

"Well, that was me as well," said the centipede.

"So where were you during the first half?" demanded the coach.

"Well," said the centipede, "I was having my ankles taped."

"I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul." 
--Jean Cocteau

"LAW OF CAT COMPOSITION:  A cat is composed of Matter + Anti-Matter + It Doesn't Matter."

"When I play with a cat, who knows if I am not  a pastime to her more than she is to me?"
               --Montaigne (1533-1592)

"I have found that when you are deeply troubled, there are things you get from the silent, devoted
         companionship of a dog that you can get from no other source.
