Scripps Holiday Party for Therapy Dogs

Scripps Holiday Party for Therapy Dogs

Scripps Health hosted a Blessing of the Pets and a “howliday” party at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla for its volunteer therapy dogs and their handlers.  More than 60 certified therapy dogs visit patients at at the hospital throughout the year.  These dogs have a huge impact upon the patients in the hospital.  The holiday season was a great time to express how much these dogs are appreciated by the hospital and its patients.  Sorry about the annoying advertisement at the begining.
