Children's Hospital Colorado Washes Furry Friends to Benefit the Prescription Pet Program

FOX31 | July 28, 2015

On July 12, 2015, Children’s Hospital Colorado hosted its 29th annual Dog Wash Fundraiser to benefit the hospital’s Prescription Pet Program. Dog lovers, pet owners and their four-legged friends gathered at the Deer Creek Animal Hospital in Littleton, CO, for a day of pampering for the pups.

The event raised $2,400, and is organized every year by Children's Colorado volunteers.

The Pet Prescription Program is an internationally-recognized program designed to lessen the intensity of hospitalization with the opportunity to cuddle, nurture and love a real-live, furry friend. The program began in 1985 and currently has over 130 pet volunteers.
