If you and your dog are looking for a meaningful way to volunteer together in the community, please consider how you can make a difference in the lives of patients and their families through the Palomar Health Pet Therapy program. Patients enjoy the comfort, joy and stress relief a therapy dog brings to brighten their day!

  • Your dog must be well socialized, calm and at least one year old.
