Big Chance Helps Patients

Chance, the latest and, at 160 pounds, the largest dog in the Pet Therapy program at Backus Hospital in Norwich, CT, started his first day as a volunteer by receiving his official badge and then visiting various floors of the hospital where he put a big smile on the faces of patients and staff.

Pet therapy dogs can help in the healing process of patients, and on his first day, Chance made a big impression.

  1. i absolutely believe in working dogs and that therapy dogs can relieve stress,
    however this dog is not happy. Almost no eye contact, head swiveled away and that tail is so down. He was stressed. I do hope it all works out though.
