MONROE - Each week for nearly a year, dogs from Monroe Clinic's therapy dog program have comforted patients and staff alike. Paws for Healing began at Monroe Clinic in July of 2016 with two therapy dogs and three volunteers. Now, the program is hoping to add three more dogs to meet with more patients.
