In 2018, we launched our therapy program with dogs 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 add it to more and more 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 really look forward to!
