The Saturday Pet Blogger Hop/The Rescued Stray Therapist

Life With Dogs is reader-supported. We may earn a small commission through products purchased using links on this page.

Nine years ago, Frances Pilot rescued a stray named Louis, a dog with much potential and a very important job in his future.

Louis was severely ill at the time of adoption, and Frances is certain he would have been euthanized had she not found her way to him. Now, Frances and Louis offer pet therapy in the animal-assisted care program at St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York, and in this report from Time, we follow Louis on the job as he helps make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate than himself.

  1. I burst out laughing when Frances said she was a proud Jewish mother because she has a son that is a doctor.

    What a great pair, she and Luis. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful story with us. Another reminder of how much dogs enrich our lives in countless ways.

  2. I can’t wait for the day that medical insurance covers therapy dogs. What could be better depression treatment?
