Dogs have the ability to heel and heal. Inka and Fern are making a difference at the M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital with their role in the NutriSource® Facility Dog Program. Our support of facility dog programs helps children, and their families, during some of the most challenging times. We believe a dog’s wet nose and the gentle wag of a tail can offer hope & unconditional love amid so much uncertainty.
In 2019, funding from NutriSource® allowed the M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis to launch a facility dog program. We are thrilled this program continues growing and impacting so many people. The facility now has THREE dogs! Inka and Fern are comforting children and families as they face treatments and hardships. Our goal is to keep expanding this facility dog program to serve more patients and their families. We want to make an impact.
