Caring Paws

‚ÄčTrained dogs and their handlers bring great joy to Adventist Health patients, visitors and staff during their visits to our Hanford, Reedley and Selma hospitals.

The Volunteer Services Department teamed up with PetSmart in Hanford to offer training to the canines and volunteer handlers. Each handler must undergo training and receive a certificate in order to bring a pet into the hospitals. Dogs also are professionally groomed before each visit.
