MCMC looks for a few good dogs

Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles holds training and testing programs on April 17, at 5:30 p.m. and May 1, beginning at 11 a.m., for dogs and handlers interested in participating in the hospital’s pet visitation program.

The dog’s personality (as well as their handler’s personality, of course) is key in creating a successful pet visitor team.

Once a dog is accepted into the program, his or her handler will be given information about being a volunteer at MCMC.

Forms and information packets are available by calling Celeste at 541-506-6426 or by emailing celestm@mcmc.net.
