Does anyone know any local hospital, Rehab. facility or Senior assisted living facility that would like a local resident to visit with their friendly dog to help boost the morale of the patients? Columbia Presbyterian in the city has a great program with hundreds of city residents visiting patients with their dogs, and the program is very popular with the patients.
