Pet Therapy Program

Pet Therapy volunteers and their certified therapy dogs spread cheer and bring smiles to the faces of patients at the Brunswick and Camden campuses and residents of our Senior Care Centers. 
To be part of the Pet Therapy Program, dogs must be certified through Therapy Dogs International, and their owners must go through the volunteer application and orientation process at Southeast Georgia Health System.
