Sometimes you just need a hug. Sometimes, animals need a hug too. A sanctuary in Colorado is giving us the opportunity to "spread the love."

This is a great way to get "in touch with nature" in the most literal sense: getting very, very close to rescued cows who could use a human's touch. As much as folks love to hang out with goats, this should also be a part of your animal experiences.

These are cows that have seen very hard times, and are now living much better lives; part of that includes having people connect with them in a loving manner. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?

9News has the story about how Luvin Arms Animal Sanctuary in Erie, a sanctuary for abused or neglected farmed animals, gives the opportunity to "Cuddle with a Cow."

You have a ton of love to give, why not give some of that to cow that weighs a ton, right?
