An Emotional Support Alligator Is In The Lead For America's Favorite Pet
August 24, 2022
An emotional support alligator from York, Pennsylvania, is currently in the lead for "America's Favorite Pet".
Wally is a 7-year-old rescue alligator who is also a licensed emotional support animal.
Owner Joie Henney says WallyGator has been helping keep his spirits up while he battles cancer.
"WallyGator is an amazing creature. He senses people emotions and gives hugs to try to cheer people up. He has been a huge support for me during my battle with cancer. He has come with me to radiation and has brought cheer to other patients and the doctors and nurses," Henney said.
Henney says Wally loves blankets.
"At night he likes to climb into my bed and steal my covers and pillow. WallyGator has tried to bring my blankets with him into his pond!"
Wally is currently in the running for "America's Favorite Pet" on AmericasFavPet.com.
If WallyGator wins, he will receive a $10,000 prize and a two-page spread in InTouch Magazine.
