Dog Therapy


Cancer treatment can create discomfort in both the body and the mind. For people who stay at a Canadian Cancer Society lodge during treatment – away from their homes and families – this period of their journey can be particularly difficult.

Therapy dogs visit the lodges to offer comfort and joy, and are a welcome distraction from the challenges of treatment. When you give the gift of Dog Therapy, you are giving unconditional love and furry cuddles to spread peace and cheer.
