Butler Memorial Hospital

Start Date: 2021-11-06

Description: We were met by Nicole and three additional social workers. Each canine team was paired with a social worker and stationed at waiting rooms on three different levels at the hospital. Doctors and nurses were able to come to the waiting room to visit with the dogs. As the team leader I floated between floors to see to the needs of the canine teams. It was a good deployment, the social workers were very helpful. The canine teams were at ease and the dogs engaged with a total of 122 people during our time there. I would absolutely work with Nicole Osgood and Butler Memorial Hospital again.

Agency: Butler Memorial Hospital
