Community Awareness and Education Programs

teal it up pet therapyPet Therapy Program

Dogs have evolved to become attuned to humans and their emotions.

That is why the foundation is proud to partner with Arizona Oncology’s Pet Therapy Program. We understand that while people are undergoing treatment, a visit by a dog may just be the “medicine” to make their day a bit brighter.

Research has shown that petting a dog releases Oxytocin, a hormone associated with bonding and affection in both the dog and the human. Therapy dogs are social animals that respond naturally to people both emotionally and sensitively.

For questions, or to request a visit, call:  480-229-7347.
