Hospitals are largely depressing places. If you're in one, most of the time it means that you're injured, in poor health, or someone you know is spending time there for similar reasons. It's safe to say that few people enjoy going to the hospital.
So sometimes it's necessary to brighten the mood a bit. These people have come up with a way to lift the spirits of the patients in one Canadian hospital.
It's hard to say goodbye to our furry friends just for the day, while we go off to work, so I can only imagine spending weeks or even months apart. What a wonderful way to bring a bit of joy to these hospital patients' days. Hopefully this program keeps up and pets can be in all hospitals soon!
