Paws for Patients
If you have visited Driscoll you may have come upon one of our Paws for Patients teams visiting our patients and their families.
Paws for Patients provides patients and their families with a healthy distraction from the usual hospital routine and an opportunity for social interaction.
Every Paws for Patients dog that visits Driscoll has been temperament tested, and both dog and handler have completed the evaluation process, so, it’s a well-trained, registered Paws for Patients team of dogs and handlers that you will see in action at Driscoll.
All Paws for Patients handlers visiting Driscoll Children’s Hospital are also Driscoll Volunteers.
