Power of Paws Launch with Rumer Willis and Nicky HIlton

Rumer Willis and Nicky Hilton help launch Power of PawsÂȘ, a new initiative that educates people about the mutual health benefits that both pets and pet parents enjoy, and motivates them to spend time together and connect. The evening included a demonstration by an assistance dog from the Bergin University of Canine Studies who has been trained to read, retrieve wallets, and untangle his own leash. In addition, guests viewed inspiring video testimonials from about pets who have helped their owners get healthier, recover/cope with an illness, deal with grief or live independently. The event also previewed an upcoming documentary called Pets and People: The Power of the Health Connection premiering Sunday, July 20 at 9 a.m. EST on Discovery Health. Hosted by Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin, the show explores the impact pets have on blood pressure, how assistance and therapy dogs can help wounded veterans and autistic children and the unwavering social support pets give their owners without asking for anything in return except love and affection
