Do you have a dog who loves people? Do you enjoy making people smile? You and your pet can make an impact in the lives of others as a therapy dog team at VCU's Medical Center. The Dogs On Call Program enhances the well being of patients, families, and staff through in-hospital visitation by trained and registered dog-handler teams from the community at no cost to patients. Our Dogs on Call teams visit with patients all over the hospital, in in-and outpatient clinics, and in satellite facilities all over Richmond, and brighten their days during difficult times. Join Dogs on Call to help provide patients and families with a special experience to look forward to!
