Children's Canines For Kids

Children's Canines For Kids animal assisted therapy program helps ease anxiety and promotes shorter recovery times. Canine Assistants trains our service dogs to provide therapy, hope and healing by doing everything from giving loving support during chemotherapy treatments to offering comforting snuggles before surgery. Children's also partners with outside service animal companies who often visit our hospitals. Patients are notified when we have these furry visitors so that they may interact with them if they choose to.
