About

Volunteers and their dogs who have been certified by a pet therapy program (e.g., Good Dog Foundation, Pet Partners, Therapy Dogs International) visit with their dogs on Wednesday and/or Saturday mornings in one or two of our patient programs. All visits are approximately 30 minutes in length and are in a group setting. New volunteers will receive an orientation from the director of volunteer services and supervision by our staff during each pet therapy visit.

We love pet therapy at Silver Hill! We hope to hear from you soon and have you join our existing pet therapy team.

If you have a loveable dog and would like to learn more about how to become a certified pet therapy team, contact the pet therapy certification programs listed above to learn more.

Please contact Lisa Ruggiero 203-801-2320 or lruggiero@silverhillhospital.org for additional information about the pet therapy program and pet therapy visit schedule at Silver Hill Hospital.
