According to Joie Henney there is only one licensed Emotional Support Alligator in the country and he was in our studio this morning! Take a listen:
Joie and his stepson Chris were excited to bring their pet by the studio this morning, they were already in town headed to a school assembly. Wally is a friendly, trained gator who just wants to be rubbed, not feared! He is available to come out to events and has a special niche with senior citizens and kids with special needs. Wally's presence it surprisingly calming.
Of course there are so many questions:
- Why? Joie adopted the alligator during a very sad time in his life. Wally's support was better than any medication!
- If Wally is legally an emotional support animal, can he go on a plane? YES, but don't expect to ever see him on one.
- Is he available for hire? YES! Contact Joie Henney at 717-577-0874
- Honestly, were you scared? Sure, he was a little intimating, but in reality, Wally's just a big love bug! The one time he began to wiggle out of control, it was just because so many people were around and no one was petting him!
We're officially pals, take a look at the photos:
