JB Rhine was fond of animals, but in 1927, it was his curiosity that led him to a ‘psychic’ horse named Lady Wonder.  By 1951, JB Rhine had initiated research programs at the Duke Parapsychology Labs that focused on the question: Do animals have Psi abilities? The research continued through the 60s and 70s, including dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, even bugs and fish.

While going through archived information at The Rhine, Susan Freeman has found and compiled interesting data and fascinating reports of potential Animal ESP that offer a glimpse into the efforts of researchers to understand a still relatively unexplained ability of animals.

A lot has changed since the early days of animal psi research. The ability to communicate with animals has expanded exponentially. This program offers the opportunity to hear from a panel of experienced animal communicators who will share their experiences and views about the nature of the work they do.
