Bringing Hope and Healing: O.T.I.S.'s $25,000

Join us as we delve deeper into the profound impact of facility dogs and our unwavering dedication to making a difference in the lives of children.

The Remarkable Impact of Facility Dogs on Children's Lives

At O.T.I.S., we recognize and embrace the incredible healing power of facility dogs in healthcare. These exceptional animals play a critical role in the well-being and recovery of children healing from trauma. They provide emotional support and companionship to hospitalized children, creating moments of joy and normalcy amidst challenging circumstances. Their presence alleviates anxiety, reduces stress, and promotes overall well-being, offering comfort for young patients undergoing medical treatments, long hospital stays, or healing from trauma. Beyond offering emotional comfort, facility dogs encouraging kids to get up and move around even when they're feeling sick, ease anxiety by demonstrating how to take medications, assist with physical rehabilitation, and so much more. Research consistently demonstrates that contact with therapy dogs reduces anxiety, encourages physical activity, and enhances socialization, resulting in improved emotional and physical outcomes for children in medical settings.

Your Donations: Making a Profound Positive Impact

We are absolutely thrilled to contribute $25,000 to Children's Hospital of Colorado's Medical Dog Program. These donations make a huge difference in the comprehensive care and training of these incredible facility dogs. The funds are crucial in covering expenses like veterinary care, food, grooming, and necessary equipment for the dogs, ensuring they have everything they need. Not only that, but the donations also support the training of the facility dogs and their handlers, ensuring they have the skills to provide the best support to pediatric patients. Plus, with these funds, the program can even expand and reach even more children in need, bringing them the comfort and healing they deserve while in the hospital. Your generosity is truly making a positive impact on the lives of these children.

The Road Ahead: Our Continued Dedication

As we celebrate our one-year anniversary, O.T.I.S. pledges to continue advocating and supporting Facility Dog Programs. We eagerly look ahead to the next phase of our journey, where we will strive to reach new milestones and touch the lives of even more children in need. Through our continued efforts, we will provide vital support to programs like Children's Hospital of Colorado's Medical Dog Program, fostering a brighter and healthier future for hospitalized children.
