Paws for a Cause
Welcome to the Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program Walk and Play L.A. page for 2019.
The dog therapy program at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is funded entirely by donations. In 2018, our fantastic volunteers and their friends raised over $30,000 through Walk LA to help support the work we do every day to bring comfort, joy and love to patients, families and staff at CHLA.
In 2018 , our 135 handler/dog teams visited an average of 1,300 patients every month. In addition, we provided doggy therapy to families, visitors and staff, logging over 89,000 interactions during the year. On April 11, 2019, we will hold our 4th Annual Dog Therapy Appreciation Day where we will celebrate having a least one therapy dog on duty every single day for four years. That's an amazing 1461 days!
You can support dog therapy by
- joining our team at Walk and Play L.A. and creating your own fundraising page.
- donating to a team member using the list at the right and help us reach our fundraising goal.
We hope you’ll join our Paws for a Cause team at the walk and help support our fundraising efforts with a donation to dog therapy at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Any amount, big or small, will be greatly appreciated and will help bring the benefits of dog therpy to all at CHLA.
