Imagine being tossed in a cage and not knowing what’s going on. That’s the predicament that far too many animals find themselves in when they get put in an animal shelter.

“I have used therapeutic music in my practice and wanted to figure out a way to help the shelter animals in my own community,” said Fisher, a holistic veterinarian whose practice in North Canton, Ohio, includes alternative approaches like aromatherapy.
