Arrange a Pet Therapy Visit

Therapy dog with patient Our dogs make regular rounds throughout various offices at FHN, and you can also request a dog to be present for specific times or treatments, such as chemotherapy sessions, a patient's birthday, or even just to make a youngster feel better about getting a shot.

If you would like to arrange a therapy dog visit, please call 815-599-6148 or make a request online below. We will confirm that your provider is comfortable with your request – there may be reasons at times that it is not appropriate for a dog to be present. We will confirm your request with you so that you know when to expect a cold nose…and a warm heart.
