CancerFree KIDS to Bring Pet Visiting Center to Children’s Hospital
Tongues and tails will be wagging with excitement at Cincinnati Children’s next spring. That’s when the first hospital-based animal visitation center in the country will open at Cincinnati Children’s.
The new center – which will allow long-term Cincinnati Children’s patients to visit with their pets at the hospital – is the result of a partnership with CancerFree KIDS, a nonprofit group that raises funds for pediatric cancer research.
The center will be wheelchair and hospital-bed accessible and will have multiple visitation bays where patients can visit with their pets.
