THERESA WAGNER- Theresa Wagner - Those of us fortunate enough to love and be loved by animals know the exquisite joy and quiet fulfillment that comes from animals living in our hearts. We know there is no turning back from loving animals intensely once we experience this bond. Animals and their love stay in our souls, once we've let them in. And we are better for it, more complete, more whole, more compassionate, and often transformed.
Loving this much, we also know the searing pain of losing them. And we know the frustration, overwhelm and compassion fatigue inherent in rescue and sheltering work, and from the awareness of the devastation of wildlife by human ignorance. Teresa is an animal communicator who can communicate with your deceased pet or animal.
