In 2018, we launched our dog therapy program for hospitalized children with cancer.
Together with the Perros Azules association, we’ve set up this program at the Hospital Gregorio Marañón (Madrid), but our goal is to be able to continue adding it to other public centers.
Thanks to spending time with the dogs, the hospitalized children improve their communication skills, as well as their physical and mental state.
Every Tuesday, a team made up of an expert and two instructors bring two dogs visit the children with cancer who are hospitalized at Gregorio Marañón. It’s a day that the kids always look forward to!
