Yoshi, pet therapy volunteer since 2010


Scripps Health offers a very special program led by our four-legged therapists -- our pet therapy program. Your canines can contribute to a patient’s quality of life because they provide a sense of peace and purpose. Our pet therapy program uses certified pet therapy dogs to visit and comfort our patients.

Pet therapy volunteers are needed at all the Scripps Hospitals. Once you join us you will select the Scripps Hospital location that is best for you. Most dog breeds and sizes are welcome to volunteeer!
