Loving Tails Canine-assisted Therapy

Our volunteer run Loving Tails Canine-assisted Therapy program allows therapy dogs to visit with patients during their stay. Canine-assisted therapy is a holistic approach to enhance a patient’s emotional, mental and physical well-being through interactions with dogs, while reducing the stress and anxiety of illness and hospitalization.

We are committed to providing this program to our patients and their families to reduce anxiety and enhance the hospital experience.
