Therapy Dog Parade
July 2, 2020
Employees of UPMC Hamot received a round of thanks for some four-legged friends on Wednesday.
12 dogs from Therapy Dogs United (TDU) and their volunteers took part in an appreciation event on UPMC Hamot’s front lawn Wednesday morning.
The group showed gratitude to UPMC Hamot employees for the job they have been doing amid the coronavirus pandemic.
TDU and UPMC Hamot have a long-standing relationship, and visited patients about three times a week prior to the onset of the pandemic. However, after staying away for over three months, the dogs were ready to show patients and staff how much they miss them.
Organizers of Wednesday’s TDU event said they just wanted to thank employees for all the are doing in keeping the community safe and encouraged them to ‘stay PAWsitive’ during these challenging times.
