Bichon Frise Club of San Diego

We are the Bichon Frise Club of San Diego, and we are excited to announce our fundraising initiative to support a heartwarming and impactful program at Rady Children’s Hospital—Resident Canine Therapy. We invite you to join us in making a difference for the children who need it most.

At Rady Children’s Hospital, the healing power of furry friends is harnessed to soothe and comfort children during challenging times. The Resident Canine Therapy program plays a vital role in comprehensive treatment and care, enriching the patient experience with joy and companionship and enhancing healing through proven therapeutic benefits.

This innovative program integrates certified, professional canine therapists into children’s treatment plans, providing full-time support that is crucial for improving outcomes. These specially trained dogs, working alongside professional therapists, offer numerous benefits, including:

    •    Reducing Pain, Fear, Anxiety, and Stress: Canine therapy helps alleviate the discomfort associated with hospital stays, scary procedures, and traumatic events.
    •    Boosting Morale and Motivation: By inspiring confidence and encouraging communication, therapy dogs support not only the children but also their families and care teams in coping and progressing toward treatment goals.
    •    Offering Unconditional Love and Acceptance: Through physical contact and soft touch, therapy dogs soothe feelings of loss and loneliness, providing a comforting presence.

The Resident Canine Therapy program is an expansion of Rady Children’s longstanding Volunteer Canine Program, enhancing its capacity and impact with the addition of professional dog and therapist teams. This initiative officially launches on June 5, 2024, through the Working Fur Kids Giveathon. The development of this program promises to strengthen the healing experience and bring comfort and hope to even more local children.

Your support is crucial to the success of this program. By donating, you are helping to fund these therapy teams, ensuring that every child at Rady Children’s Hospital has access to the unique and powerful benefits of canine therapy. Together, we can make a significant difference in the lives of these children and their families.

We kindly ask you to consider making a donation to support Resident Canine Therapy. Your generosity will directly contribute to the wellbeing and healing of children facing some of the toughest moments of their lives.

Thank you for your compassion and support.

Sincerely,
Bichon Frise Club of San Diego

P.S. Every contribution, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to bringing joy, comfort, and healing to the children at Rady Children’s Hospital. Thank you for making a difference!
