Helping Hands featured on Animal Planet's Collar of Duty

Helping Hands recipient Travis and his service monkey, Siggy were featured on Animal Planet's Canadian documentary series Collar of Duty.

The original 12-part series, recently released for limited viewing within the U.S., focuses on the lives of those transformed by a therapeutic or service animal. These amazing true stories—a poodle assisting with a boy's epileptic seizures, a war veteran finding solace in his rescue parrots, a miniature horse that can detect low blood sugar, just to name a few—all center around the priceless human-animal bond.

Season 2, Episode 10 "Paighton & Portia/Travis & Siggy." Travis and Siggy's story begins at 10:26.
