Bring a smile to someone who could really use a day brightener by bringing in your Pet Therapy dog for a visit! Some furry friends are needed at Abbott Northwestern Hospital)!! We have opportunities to visit patients in several units, patients experiencing long length of stay, cancer treatments, heart failure and more. We also have opportunities to provide comfort to staff who spend their days caring for others.

Pet therapy visits offer a much-needed diversion from the patient's routine and provides an enjoyable activity that is beneficial for both the patient and family members. Visiting Pet Therapy dogs can help to diminish the feeling of isolation and loneliness that so often goes with being in an inpatient setting.

Join us on a weekday! We are flexible on the day or time of the visits. It is best if you can commit to a regular visit either weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.

Dogs must be certified through an established pet therapy program such as Pet Partners and be current on all vaccines.
