Currently we have a total of 15 Pet Therapy Dogs participating in the program. The joy the children receive is truly a wonderful sight, to love and be loved back, unconditionally, by these dogs. Additionally, these furry friends provide for a great anxiety reliever during difficult hospital stays.
This program is loved and appreciated by not only patients, but families, volunteers, and staff. Though it may seem a bit surprising to see dogs in a hospital, they elicit the biggest smiles from the children.
