Meet The PAWS Team

Certified therapy dogs not only reduce stress, depression, and blood pressure, but they also improve self-esteem, increase physical mobility, provide comfort, and eradicate loneliness. When partnered with physicians, therapists, and nurses, animal assisted therapy can also help patients to reach health goals, remain positive and keep motivated. Here at MUSC, our therapy dogs specialize in tail wagging happiness. We appreciate all our incredible volunteer animal therapists.
