When Dogs Heal is a photographic exhibition supported by the charity Fred Says, which helps people diagnosed with HIV.
The photographs tell the stories of the dogs who helped their HIV-positive owners through tough times.
The photographs have been shown in Chicago and New York, and through the When Dogs Heal website, galleries can express interest in hosting an exhibit.
The stories behind the photographs are pretty hard-hitting, but then again so is HIV and the impact of an HIV diagnosis. Just another example of the human-animal bond and the connection between dogs and good health.
