Adoption

A Humane Society of the Treasure Coast therapy dog, Sadie, a 3-year-old female Cavalier King Charles spaniel, greets the medical staff during a shift change on Wednesday, Aug. 11, 2021, at Cleveland Clinic Martin North Hospital in Stuart. "Our goals for these outdoor visits are really just to give the caregivers a break," said Jessie Clifford, the director of humane education. "We understand that they have gone through a tremendous amount of work during this pandemic and since we can't go inside, we figured we will go outside if that helps cheer them up even if it's just for a few seconds on their way in or out." Currently, the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast has 11 volunteers participating in outdoor visits at Cleveland Clinic North, South and Tradition.Tcn Therapy Dogs Hospital
