Paws Can Heal
Bring the Healing Power of Animals to Sick Kids

The WINGS Women’s Board Invites You To Make A Difference

From helping children cope with the stress of a hospital stay to providing a distraction during painful procedures, animal-assisted therapy can be an important part of the healing process for Phoenix Children’s patients.

Working with therapy animals can be especially valuable for patients undergoing physical or occupational therapy. The opportunity to take a dog for a walk or throw it a ball can motivate a child to overcome pain and discomfort, making it easier to work toward treatment goals.

Support The Facility Dog Program

Later this year, Phoenix Children’s will launch a Facility Dog Program that will bring a full-time therapy dog and a trained specialist dedicated exclusively to providing rehabilitation services. The addition of a full-time therapy dog will make animal-assisted therapy available to more rehab patients and provide better continuity of care for them.

The Facility Dog Program is funded entirely by philanthropy. WINGS is raising funds to support the addition of the full-time therapy dog and the costs of its ongoing care.

We hope you will help us reach our fundraising goal by making a gift today. With your support, we can help many more Phoenix Children’s patients and their families benefit from animal-assisted therapy.
