People Animal Connection (PAC Program) Therapy Dogs

UCLA Health System has one of the most comprehensive AAT/A programs in the nation. PAC volunteer-dog teams offer companionship and warmth to more than 500 critically ill children and adults per month. PAC was founded in 1994 to enhance physical healing and emotional well-being through the canines' instinctive bond with patients of all ages, cultures, and socioeconomic levels.
