Dog Therapy with Pet Partners
This program consists of registered volunteers and their certified therapy dogs who will visit patients in need of comfort and support. These animals can also provide a therapeutic experience for patient’s families, visitors, and employees.
Pet Partners’ Animal Therapy Program has been in existence for more than forty years and has set the standard for what it means to deliver excellence in animal-assisted interventions. There are many researched benefits with Dog Therapy, such as: improving the patient’s mood, increasing the patient’s level of social interaction, and providing a healthy diversion from the hospital routine.
Wilson Health is proud to work with Pet Partners and offer this service to our patients, visitors and staff.
