Giving Back Through The Banner Health Foundations  

Dog Therapy


Banner Health realizes that sometimes tail wagging is the best medicine and offers pet therapy programs in its Arizona and Colorado hospitals.

A $100 donation could buy 6 months' worth of dog treats or pay for photos of dogs and patients to be given to patients.

Donate now to a Banner Health hospital in Arizona or Colorado.

  • Dogs can reach people who are depressed or feel lonely. They have helped pediatric patients take a walk when no one else can, including parents. 
  • In existence since 1990, Banner Health's Pet Therapy program is the longest-running hospital-based pet therapy program in Arizona.
  • About 100 dogs are involved in our pet therapy program.
  • Dogs come in all sizes and breeds, from Golden Labradors to Chihuahuas.
  • Our dogs have wonderful temperaments, are obedient, have the ability to learn and are well groomed. They readily accept strangers and sit still amidst distractions.
  • This is a completely volunteer effort.
