Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dogs are not currently visiting in-person in the province's hospitals. Connections are being made virtually through our website, and cardboard statuettes are now greeting patients until in-person visits can resume.
A great big BARK OUT of THANKS to the Royal University Hospital Foundation, Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation, St. Paul's Hospital Foundation - Saskatoon, and Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation for making sure these 'flat' furry friends continue to provide support.
