Licks, Wags and Lots of Love

Some of the most beloved members of the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital team are the four-legged volunteers in our Pet-A-Pet Program. A hospital can be a frightening place to young children and these loveable and cuddly canines provide a much-needed – and welcome – diversion. Families and hospital staff also benefit from taking a moment out of their day to unwind in the company of these dedicated dogs.

All of the dogs in the Pet-A-Pet program, as well as their owners, participate in a rigorous screening and orientation process.
