Pet ‘therapists’ provide love, compassion and a listening ear

Angie, Gunner, Jordy, Dice, Penny, Enzo, Aspyne … they all take their work as therapists very seriously and instinctively know what people need.

It may be a moment of play, being quietly close, listening to a story or providing comfort as only this type of therapist can give. These therapists are the four-legged kind, specially-trained dogs whose “parents” volunteer with them through pet therapy programs at Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield and Marshfield Medical Center-Rice Lake.

Watch this touching story about the care these canines provide for those in need of their affection, attention and a tail wag and the pet therapy programs of which they are a part.
