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

As I write this email, Harvey Hurricane and the aftermath is on my mind, as well as yours, I am sure. We were fortunate to be far enough away to only have rain and high winds. Many thanks to those of you who contacted me to see if my family was safe.

And also for those of you who emailed me, my husband, Jay is doing great after his hip replacement. He’s already walking with a cane and not a walker and it’s been less than 3 weeks!

Amid all that is going on, children are headed back to school and fall is on it’s way. Although the holidays may seem far away, we’ll be asking for those cute holiday photo pictures of your animals in October for our annual photo contest. So start looking through last year’s photos. More to come on this next month.

We hope that this newsletter finds you and your human and animal family doing well and looking forward to the season change.

From the Horse's Mouth - Feature Article
September 11, 2001 remembered

With the 16th anniversary of September 11th this month, I thought I would republish the article that I wrote following this tragic loss. It is a reminder that we can all help those people and animals who are emotionally hurting under whatever circumstances by sending positive, healing thoughts their way. Unfortunately, this thought is even more meaningful given the current circumstances with Hurricane Harvey.

Here is the article that was published in 2001.


September 11, 2001 will always be in our memories. As we mourn the loss of all those who tragically died from this event, we all deal with this in our own way.

Just like all of you, I was shocked when I heard the first reports coming over the news. Since I live on the West Coast, this was all happening before 6am our time. My husband was on his way to work and it didn’t take me long to ask him to please come home, since he works in a high rise building in San Diego, which is the home of the Pacific Navy Fleet.

Over the next few days, like many of you, I was glued to the TV and wondering what I could do to help. As I watched one of the rescue dogs coming out of the rubble, I burst into tears as I could feel his emotions. This brave Golden Retriever was doing his job so diligently. His job was to find bodies and yet, he had found none. He was depressed and confused. He only wanted to do his job.

I immediately shut off the TV and tried to communicate with him. I introduced myself, as I always do, and asked if he would communicate with me. He didn’t seem to question my presence at all. I told him that I had seen him on TV and he made me cry because he was so sad. I explained how many people were so proud of the work he was doing. I told him that I know how hard it is to keep searching and not have any success. But the work he was doing was helping so many families who were worried about their loved ones. I told him that I thought he was so brave and so special to have such an important job where he could be of service to so many.

I could feel this friendly Golden Retriever sigh. Although he felt that he had the weight of the world on his shoulders, it seemed to be a slight bit less heavy now.

Over the next few days I heard stories of the rescue dog handlers hiding in the rubble, so that their dogs could find them. They knew their dogs needed to feel some sense of success and reward. The rescuers might not admit that they telepathically communicate with their dogs but certainly they were feeling the depression and sense of failure that their dogs were feeling.

After this one communication, I decided that what I could do for those in NYC was to help their animals. There were stories of animals being left behind, stories of so many who had perished and then there were happy stories about those who had been reunited with their people. With this in mind I decided to do what I would call a broadcast communication, inviting all the animals in that area to hear to what I had to say.
Within seconds, I felt as though I was surrounded by animals…mostly cats and dogs but also a few fish, snakes, iguanas, mice, gerbils, and hamsters. The emotions and confusion that poured from these animals was so huge that I had to quickly tell them that I was there to help but I needed to have some order in how I would help.

I began with the group that I felt was most frightened, those who were still separated from their people. I explained that their own people and others were trying to reunite them with their families if they could. I told them that I was sorry to say that many people lost their lives and I did not know who would be reunited and who would not. I also reassured them that there were many people there to care for them and they would be treated kindly, no matter what. Almost all of them calmed down and said they were willing to wait. A few that were too overcome with emotion to comprehend what I was telling them required some individual communication, which I provided.

The next group I met with were those animals who had passed away but due to the suddenness and shock of it all, they didn’t realize that they had passed on into the spirit world. I explained that they needed to move on. Some would meet their people in the spirit world and others would be cared for by spirits they did not know but who loved them. At that point, one of the deceased rescue dogs asked if he could show them the way. He had been waiting for his partner to come back but now realized his partner was alive but he was not. He felt his last act of service was to guide the others on their way.

And finally, I met with the group of animals who had found their people again but were so frightened by all the events. Even some who were not right in the immediate area joined this group because the incident was too close for comfort. These animals told me how grateful they were to find their people and be reunited. Most wanted to give comfort to their human family but felt so needy themselves. I reassured them that what they were feeling was to be expected. They should try to stay close to their family for now, so they could all heal together. Apparently my youngest dog also picked up this message, because she would not stop begging me to touch her, which I think helped to heal us both.

I invite all of you who can communicate to send a message of reassurance to the animals in NYC. If you have not learned how to communicate yet then send positive, healing thoughts to the animals in the area. Just like us, their world has been shaken and they need our support.

(As we remember this event, please continue to send positive, healing thoughts and prayers to the animals and families who were personally involved in this tragic day.)

Customer Comments

From Barbara S. of Wallingford, CT....   Thank you very much, Danielle. You were able to help me much more than "in some small way." I will never hesitate to suggest you to others if someone asks me. You are very talented. Thanks again.

From Bistra S. of Homeslet, Denmark…. Thank you so much for conducting the session! I truly appreciate the work you did and it brought me comfort. It was so nice to hear from Hector and to know that he is strong, healthy and happy again. I'm not surprised at all that he is doing healer work in the spirit world as he had always had a kind heart.

From Joe C of Drum, PA….    Thank you for communicating with Bear. This has been very insightful for me, as he is sometimes difficult to read. Bear is so very special to me and I will always give him the best.

From Sharyn J. of Mountain Top, TX… Just a brief note to say that Diva definitely has lived up to what she told you. She makes sure to eat food whenever I go into the studio...and she makes sure I see her nibbling at her vittles. Then she scoots back to quiet of her bedding corral and snoozes.Once again, your amazing work has helped restore her. We both send many thanks.

From Myra M. of  Laguna Niguel, CA…. Thank you so much for communicating with Buddy. This gave me a lot of insight into what has been going on with my little guy. Buddy and I were with the vet when your email came thru, so was able to give her a copy of the reading.Again, thank you.

A Good Laugh

Especially for Horse Lovers….

Surgeon Generals warning on horse hair

This is a public service announcement. In a press release today, the National Institute of Health has announced the discovery of a potentially dangerous substance in the hair of horses.

This substance, called "amobacter equuii" has been linked with the following symptoms in female humans:
reluctance to cook,
reluctance to perform house work,
reluctance to wear anything but boots,
reluctance to work except in support of a horsephysical craving for contact with horses (may be an addiction)


If you come in contact with a female human infected by this substance, be prepared to talk about horses for hours on end.

Surgeon General's Warning: Horses are expensive, addictive, and may impair the ability to use common sense.

Another Good Laugh

A man driving around the backwoods of Montana  sees a sign in front of a broken down house; 'Talking Dog For  Sale  .'  He rings the bell, and the owner appears and tells him that the dog is in the backyard.

The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

'You talk?' he asks.

'Yep,' the Lab replies.

After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he asks 'So, what's your story?'

The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young.  I wanted to help my country, so I contacted the CIA.  In no time at all, they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.'

'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.  But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger.  So I decided to settle down.  I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.  I uncovered some incredible drug deals and was awarded a batch of medals.'

'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner how much he wants for the dog..

'Ten dollars,' the guy says.

'Ten dollars?  This dog is amazing!  Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?'

'Because he's a liar.  He never did any of that stuff!

Subscriber Buzz


We were thrilled to hear that Diva, who is part of Sharyn J.’s family in Mountain Top, PA had such positive news about her biopsy on a tumor. It was benign!  What wonderful news for Diva and Sharyn.

When Diana D. of Temecula, CA was checking up on us after the hurricane, she included this adorable picture of her cat, Gracie. She sure is fascinated by that lizard on the screen. Or...is the lizard teasing Gracie. Great picture, Diana!

Congratulations to Dan L. of Tempe, AZ. Dan was looking for a new dog at the shelter and just couldn’t turn away from a brother and sister pair who the shelter was hoping to not separate. Thanks, Dan for rescuing both Sadie and Sam.

We love to hear what’s going on with you and your animals. Just send us an email at AnimalConn@aol.com and feel free to include pictures.

Helping the Animals of Hurricane Harvey

My heart goes out to all the people involved in Hurricane Harvey, as well as their animals. Several of you have asked if I know how you can help the animals. There are two organizations that I have contributed to that I feel are extremely worthwhile and could definitely use your help.

The first is an organization that I have supported for years…. Best Friends. Best Friends’ disaster response team has deployed to Texas to rescue stranded animals, deliver supplies to hard-hit shelters, transport displaced shelter pets and support emergency sheltering efforts. And the part that I particularly like is that they have set up a lost and found listing to try to help families find their pets after they were separated from them. Check out BestFriends.org if you would like to help out.

The second is close to my home, Austin Pets Alive, who are taking in displaced animals from the affected areas. While they are taking in these animals, they are also fostering as many of the animals they currently have at their shelter to local families so they can make room for the new animals. It’s a big job, especially since they are one of the closest cities to Houston. To date they  have taken in over 400 animals and are expecting to help well over 1,000. Their web site is www.austinpetsalive.org and there is information on how to help there.

Needless to say, this is a tragedy for the people and the animals of the affected areas. If you wish to help, I know anything you can provide to any organization will be appreciated.

Pricing Change

I want to let my subscribers and clients know that some of Animal Connection’s prices will change effective October 1, 2017. Since I began communicating with animals for others in 1997, I have only raised my rates once which was over 10 ago. However, in order to keep up with increasing costs, some of our sessions will increase in price.

Although pricing will go up, I am still committed to providing reasonably priced services so that a large number of people can take advantage of using an animal communication service. And of course, you will continue to receive the same quality product when I communicate with your animal.

Effective October 1, 2017, Standard, Reassurance and Memorial Sessions, as well as gift certificates for those sessions, will increase from $35 to $45. Custom Sessions will still be priced individually based upon the extent of what is requested. Our how-to communicate booklet price remains the same price. And finally, our online newsletter is still free.

Thank you for understanding that these increases are needed in order to keep up with increasing business costs.
