"It's not easy to be somebody who touches everybody. Sick or not, we all have problems. There's nothing a therapy dog can't fix." - Erica Witherspoon, patient

At Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, our volunteers aren't just human! For 25 years, the Pet Friend Visitation Program at Children’s has grown to include about 40 therapy dogs. Watch the video and find out what it’s like to bring wagging tails and lots of love to patients throughout the hospital.

That's wonderful smile I think that the therapy dog program is such a great idea.
