Thanks to a grant from the Norma Roman Longfellow Fund, Hospice of Douglas County will add another facet of "compassionate care" to its program - therapy dogs.
Registered therapy dogs can provide comfort, support and animal companionship to hospice patients and their families.
It has been proven that the sight of a dog and the touch of their fur can often bring peace and joy to those patients whose life once included animals.
