Founded in 2002 and one of the first of its kind at any Ronald McDonald House, the Pet Therapy Program provides weekly visits from certified Therapy Dogs for our families.

Our Therapy Dogs are a welcome distraction on Wednesday nights as they spread smiles and cheer after long days spent at the hospital. Our canine volunteers come in all shapes and sizes, from little Chihuahuas to a 215 pound English Mastiff! No matter how big or small, our Therapy Dogs are gentle and loyal friends who pass strict testing and certification requirements before ever coming into the House.
