Pet therapy

Monday to Sunday

Paw-fect bedside buddies! Delta Society Australia provides volunteers for the pet therapy program at the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, and bring their wonderful dogs to visit sick kids.

Research shows that interaction with these furry friends helps with pain management, stimulates the senses, has a calming effect on patients, and often brings lots of laughter.

Our Children’s Hospital Foundation volunteers accompany the pet therapy volunteers as they visit patients at their bedsides and bring endless joy to the kids and their families.
