Pet Therapy at Fall Festival


Lutheran Medical Center held its first ever Fall Festival on Saturday. It was a ton of fun, as different groups from the hospital dressed for Halloween while holding a health fair. They asked Pet Therapy to lead the way with a Pet Therapy Parade. If it means they get to greet people, the dogs are always happy to oblige!

It was another intense day of greeting her new friends. Zoe is tired, but content.

  1. Little Zoe (sorry I misspelled her name on my post) is way too adorably cute. I didn’t see Roxann and Little One, only Betty’s greyhound. I think I was overstimulated, much like Sam. A fun event for everyone…whether they had 2 or 4 paws.

  2. It was fun. Most of the time it’s just the Pet Therapy team working in the hospital, so I really enjoy our get togethers, because it’s the only time we get to see each other.
