Joy in Childhood Foundation gifts hospital with furry friend

by
dog

The Joy in Childhood Foundation granted The Children’s Hospital a trained in-residence dog at a canine-themed “Day of Joy” welcome event. This gave patients, staff and their families a chance to celebrate the newest canine and the veteran canines on staff: Targa, Ned and Dany.

Like Targa, the new canine will come to work with her handler and will be available to support kids during procedures, in intensive care and surgical settings and when a therapy dog is unavailable. Blending clinical-care goals with the loving comfort of a dog has been a huge success for the hospital.
