Dogs love kids. And kids love dogs.
Our team of volunteer dog owners are on hand to roam the halls with four-legged friends, making stops in both inpatient and outpatient areas with the tirelessly loving canines. These steadfast volunteers visit regularly, giving patients a chance to play with their favorite pooches throughout their hospital stay.
Child life services staff and pet owner volunteers strictly supervise the program. All visiting animals must pass a health screening and are fully vaccinated. Visiting dogs and their owners receive proper training and must be certified by Therapy Dog International.
