Providence Hospice of Seattle recently started using therapy dogs to work with hospice patients and their families, and they are looking for people to volunteer with their pets to work with the terminally ill.
In a KING 5 News report on Tuesday morning, reporter Jane McCarthy talked with pediatric hospice social worker Maureen Horgan as Horgan and her yellow lab mix named Dresden visit with a young hospice patient.
