Team of the Month: Sharon & Molly

Category: Team of the Month

Molly and I have been a therapy dog team for 5 years.  During that time we have mostly visited River Bend Hospital.  The patients really enjoy her sweetness and calmness. The staff love sharing affection with her by taking a brief well-deserved puppy break.  We also do occasional hospice visits, crisis response visits, and quarterly visits with U of O students during "dead week", studying for finals.


Molly enjoys the attention she gets and helping people feel better.  I receive much joy in seeing how much the visits mean to the patients and students.
