Dogs that dole out unconditional love got their due on Sunday, when dozens of therapy animals were honoured by St. John’s Ambulance.
The pets – and their equally hard-working owners – are used in a variety of rehabilitation roles. They help those who are sick, lonely or reside in full-time care facilities.
Patients who have never responded to any other visit light up when the dogs are brought in, one volunteer explained.
